One of the nine that I mentioned as failures. When I removed the tape, the clean white edges made me go, Hmm. Maybe it is not so bad. I would have preferred smooth blends but hey, this certainly does mimic striations seen in the desert landscape.

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature is pleased with simplicity.
And nature is no dummy.
Isaac Newton

What induces you, oh man, to depart from your home in town, to leave parents and friends, and go to the countryside
over mountains and valleys,
if it is not for the beauty of the world of nature?
Leonardo da Vinci

Study how water flows in a valley stream,
smoothly and freely between the rocks.
Also learn from holy books and wise people.
Everything – even mountains, rivers, plants and trees
– should be your teacher.
Morihei Ueshiba
