Zen, and reflections on inspiration

Ok, not so abstract any more....
This time the idea came to me as a complete picture. Usually I have to work hard at this aspect, but not this time.
As one of my teachers said: it's 95% perspiration and 5% inspiration. To my chagrin, he was right most of the time.

This painting combines for me my new-found freedom in the background, and a feeling of 'Zen' or simplicity in the bowl.
For those who are wondering: yes- it is a singing bowl, and no- I don't use it for meditation purposes. (In fact, I don't use it at all).
However, very happy with the result!!! :)
