Sunday Sketches and Post Cards from Paradise



Note: Blog Hop every Monday ^_^

Note: Haiku ~ click tab above Haiku April 22-30


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 literally 'getting out feet wet, again' ~ We took our artwork, Asian brush paintings, oil pastels, photography and digitally altered photography with haiku over to Kahn Gallery on Rocky Neck to be displayed for the season. Wish us luck and do check out her wonderful gallery. She is a very talented and prolific artist. Today we are exploring Sunday Sketches and Post Cards from Paradise. (click on the link to go there)

The above sketch is another of my Asian type brush paintings. She has the makings of being a good one, yet am not happy with my first try with this one. Will do another soon. That is why I tend to do them in my sketch book now and work from there.  The photo below is a photo from a trip to Hawaii. Hawaii is very much a paradise state, at least visually. It can be rather expensive to live there as they are islands thus much is imported in and prices are higher. The weather is wonderful and I wouldn't mind spending a few months in that tropical paradise. Yet, am content here.



Hope you enjoy the artists and photographers at Sunday Sketches and Post Cards from Paradise.


Hugs and namaste,

  1. I have to tell you something amazing. I'm listening to music and just scrolling down your post reading... Exactly the moment I come to the picture of the beach, the music shifts and a recording of surf washing up on a beach comes on! Serendipity!

    I do love the work you do with those asian brushes. Makes me really want to try it out.

  3. I have always heard it is really expensive to live in Hawaii. It's expensive to visit, for that matter. But so beautiful! You have your own gorgeous spot in the world, though. ;)

  10. I think your Little Geisha Girl painting is really good. You are so talented! I can't draw anything. As for Hawaii, I have never been there but have a Facebook friend who lives there. He shares his pictures with me there and it is so beautiful. Personally though, I like my climate here in NY. I can only take summer weather for so long, then I am ready for fall.

  12. You did a great job, Asian brush style is hard. Making on perfect line after another without sketching them out first. Yikes, hard for me!!

  16. Listening to the surf on any coastline is a longing of mine that's what makes your quote appealing along with your sweet little geisha girl.

    Namaste x

  20. Carol, I love this brush style. Your way of presenting this little Geisha makes me appreciate Asia more. Sounds quite pompous doesnt it. Somewhat for years Asia hold some dislike for me. Only recenntly I strated to open up and your Geisha has done me good there too!

  24. Hi Carol and art muse dog!
    The Artist's Play Room is posted every Saturday morning, first I wrap up last week by showing the art then I put up the new challenge theme for the upcoming week. Add your artwork throughout the week, from when the theme opens on Saturday morning all the way through to the next Saturday (early, I'm in the westcoast of Canada so it gives everyone east of me time to get last minute submissions in.) I post the new post around noon Saturday Pacific time.
    I look forward to seeing you around APR!
    Best,

  26. all day i have been outside in the garden, the hillsides, between giant boulders removing weeds to make way for all the poppies, iris, sunflowers, morning glories and soon to be summer garden.
    it has been so satisfying following the shade, taking in the fragrance and colours and saving every ones postcards for a well deserved rest. thank you for your beauty and your willingness to share it!

  29. Lovely little geisha girl. I just watched Memoirs of a Geisha recently on TV. Wonder what the Universe is trying to tell me.

  30. This is a pretty nice sketch, actually. You should practice your Asian brush art more if you're not satisfied with this yet.
