Asian Style Painting and Haiku
|Another Asian Style Brush Painting|
Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.
Friday, Friday, Friday Yea! Not for the reasons you might think.
This is our favorite post day as we share our creativity with two of our favorite blogs. They are Paint Party Friday and Haiku My Heart. With PPF we share our paintings. With HMH we get to share our haiku. Both blogs are linked with talented artists and poets. Joining these sites has, indeed, enhanced my inner spirit along with improving my painting skills and my haiku skills. ArtMuse Dog is happy because she always knows I am happy when I am creating. (most of the time)
The above Asian style painting is a fish called chaetodon and is frequently seen in home aquariums. This style is done with a brush pen or an asian brush with minimal strokes and then enhanced with watercolors or colored ink.
My haiku are below:
swim little fish home
coming to self always been
long journey round, flow.
river flows its way
natural direction clear
can you be river?
fleeting mind no kind
peaceful, centered, focus
be gentle with divine.
This week has been a bit busy and strange. So TGIF, as they say. Wishing you the best in the day. Enjoy the artists and poets.
Hugs and namaste,
We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day, especially, ArtMuse Dog ^_^
She also thinks Google + is pretty neat.
