Paint Party Friday and Haiku My Heart

'Haiga'
(meaning a haiku with a picture or photo)




Welcome to my blog where I view life from the eyes of an artist soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.


I am still in my playing mode with my Asian brush paintings and exploring with brush, paints and adding a haiku to create a 'haiga.' The above photo is of one of my 'haiga' creations. Because I have an Artist Reception this Saturday evening, I have needed to 'let go ' and just play and not try and create anything too seriously. Thus, the end result of 'play' is my above creation and two haiku below for the two blogs that I thoroughly enjoy on Friday and they are:

Paint Party Friday

and

Haiku My Heart

There are lots of wonderful artists and poets at these sites. I have also written two more haiku as I tend to like to write three haiku.

haiku

 deep blue sea today 
ocean sparkling after rain
sun brilliant rays.
-o-
 near sea delightful
soothing my inner spirit
 summer day playing.
-o-

Hope you enjoy all the wonderful artists and poets and their varied styles of expression.

Wishing you a happy and loving weekend.


Hugs and namaste,
