Red and Blue, colored branch study
One of my neighbor's bushes died. So he dig it out and put it at the curb side for trash pick up the other day. I saved it from being thrown to the trash dump site, and made it into my ikebana.
When I was working with the branches I cut from the dead bush, Momoe, one of my ikebana students, suggested that I should spray paints on them, red and blue. Well, I did, and it turned out to be a rather good arrangement. I showed the arrangement to my neighbor. They were delighted that I made a piece of art work from their trash.
