SKETCHES AND PHOTOS



Another Asian brush sketch





A CREATIVE HARBOR

Welcome to our blog where we view life through the eyes of an artist's soul and explore how creativity can enhance the inner spirit.


Today we are exploring artists and photographers. The artists are linked with Sophie's Sunday Sketches and the photographers are lined with Rebecca's Post Cards from Paradise.

The above sketch is done with a slight Asian brush style and watercolors. It is suppose to be a robin as I live in New England and hopefully soon we will be seeing this magical bird. This sketch is for Sunday Sketches.






The photo above is showing you the ice that is still around on Cape Ann  MA, a type of 'paradise'. In fact, we awoke to several inches of snow on the ground this morning. Now it is mostly melted. This photo above is for Post Cards from Paradise.

We hope you all are having the kind of weekend you would like. We also are wishing you a marvelous week ahead. Do come back tomorrow and consider linking up to our Blog Hop ~ Magical Monday ~ Hope to see you there.



Hugs and namaste,

We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day ~ especially, ArtMuse Dog. Thanks.



Come back on Monday and consider linking up with our Magical Monday Blog Hop and meet new bloggers and shine your light.

  1. I like the painting of your robin. It looks like you used watercolors, which is not a very easy painting medium to use.

  20. I hope you see robins soon. Until then, your charming robin will greet you. That snow is still falling in your harbor delights me. I am on the opposite coast with days ranging up to the 70s at times.
