Imperfections are Lovable

"The writer must be true to truth." And that's a killer, because the only way you can describe a human being truly is by describing his imperfections. The perfect human being is uninteresting... It is the imperfections in life that are lovable.~ Thomas Mann

Unfortunately, we most of us don't like pictures taken or shown of our "imperfections", but we can all relate with them. Some of my favorite pictures of my family and friends are those taken in full laughter. The older I get the more I love to be reminded of those jovial moments.
I have been doing much reading since ArtPrize ended in October. My brain and schedule needed the rest from such a demanding creative schedule. I have been working on finishing up a few unfinished projects and waiting for some ideas from a client in New York for a mosaic kitchen backsplash. As soon as I start that project I will share the process with y'all.
By the way, this is one of my favorite pictures of my little Sweetie when she first tried bananas.
Here is also the finished mosaic table I had started in my last blog entry.
It is the "imperfect" nature of mosaic that makes it my favorite pastime.
