The other day, I was sitting in my dining room, looking at my beautiful Chao Shao-An calendar. A Chinese master for sure. I have this calendar on grey walls. Above is a soft yellow ceiling. I prefer to not have white ceilings, whenever possible.
Anyways, I noticed a black spot up in the yellow area by the wall. I figured it must be a spider, as spring is coming, and I didn’t have on my glasses. So I watched for a while as this spot moved , heading for the grey zone. As I tried to ever so gently reach my glasses, the spot, yes spider, zoomed over to the wall and hurried down to the calendar. Isn’t it always amazing how we feel someone/something looking at us? Our radar goes off, and the eyes meet. Someone/something has to give.
Since the painting for the month of April has a lot of black, as in the tree area done in Ink, and then Red Kapok blossoms and a small blue and black bird, that spider knew just how to camouflage itself. It stopped right on the “tree”. Instantly gone. So cool.
