In Japanese culture, there is a painting technique called Buddha Board.

We paint with watercolours.
As the painting dries, the colours fade away, so does the painting.

The work, no matter how beautiful, is no more.

What if every work of ours was on a Buddha Board? It will eventually fade away. 

What will we be left with? 

Our work is what we become in the process, not what we make it to be.
