Sunday Sketches and Post Cards from Paradise


Asian Type Brush Painting



Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist soul and explore what creativity can do to enhance the inner spirit.

Haiku Heights ~ please note ~ click on tab above for Haiku April daily posts of haiku. ~ thanks, namaste. ^_^



Today we are exploring artists' sketches, paintings and photography. Whether viewing or doing something creative, the process brings to the spirit something of beauty and may even enlighten the soul. There is much research available to support the theory that 'art heals'. By art, of course, we are referring to whatever is creative. We will not all agree on what we see as beauty or creative. We each process information that comes in through our senses and is interpreted by our perception. Being similar yet unique individuals, how information gets interpreted depends upon the brain's interaction with our sensation and perception. Probably more information then you want or need to read. So join our exploration by clicking on the links for Sunday Sketches and Post Cards from Paradise. The photo below is my interpretation of 'paradise'.

Happy Easter, Happy Spring Equinox, Happy Day.


Hugs and namaste,
