Paint Party Friday and Haiku My Heart
|Another Asian type brush painting of minnows.|
Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.
Today we are exploring painting and poetry and how they enhance the soul. Creativity does heal the mind, body and soul if you let it. When one is creating something, whatever that project might be, one's spirit is centered and focused. The energy is gently moving through the person's mind, body and soul. It is when the energy becomes blocked that 'dis-ease' manifests itself and needs some means to release the energy. Creativity could be that release. Trying some deep breaths as well.
Today's post is for Friday and that means Paint Party Friday and Haiku My Heart. The artists and poets have been busy creating and share each Friday what it is they have created.
The above painting is an Asian type brush painting that I created of 'minnows'. Of course, these fish are not normally purple. I decided to use my 'artistic license' and render them purple. It seemed to be the color my inner spirit wanted to use to express myself at that moment in time.
Below are my haiku which is another way I use my spiritual energy. I find that once again, when I am focused on writing haiku, my whole being takes over and for that period of time 'I am 'far from the maddening crowd'. I am in a deep spiritual place.
