Puka shells




















Polished by the ocean, time, sand, and patience... into perfection
Ahhh... to find a perfect puka shell with warm sun on my back, hot sand between my toes.

Found last summer on Keawaula Beach, Oahu, Hawaii. Puka: Hole in Hawaiian

One breath, one stroke... brush yoga

No refinement.                                                                                        
Irregular, flexible, organic, unique, complex, spontaneous, ambiguous, uneven, mysterious, whole... utterly singular.
