Simple, clean, just enough texture and color variation so as not to be clinical or boring. Swirls. Dots. Inclusions. Not white but not much color. Actually, a similar stone is used in the bathroom floors of our condo. Nice because, well, not white. Not sterile or generic, yet not making a brash statement. Not that brash statements might not have their place…perhaps this tells me why it is a good exercise to make art with very little color, at least once in a while. Color can be deliciously distracting!
