Paint Party Friday and Haiku My Heart




Asian Style Brush Painting



Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.


Hey, it's Friday that means we get to explore artists' creations and poets haiku. The above painting is not one of my best yet the essence of the creation is good so am sharing it with Paint Party Friday. We are also linked today with Haiku My Heart and my haiku are below.


haiku
foggy, rainy June
leaves flying round whirling by
this is Spring version 2012.
-o-

hazy, hot humid
coming this weekend, steaming
Summer on Cape Ann.
-o-

tis true wait minute
wind will shift, manic moody
life on the island.
-o-


Another view of my Asian Style Painting
Hope you feel your inner spirit being enhanced with views of artists' work and poets' haiku. Wishing you a wonderful fun weekend.


Hugs and namaste,

  10. i love this painting! something about the graceful flowering...coupled with the intense red stationary sun.

    your haiku describe perfectly all my years living in mendocino, dressing in layers as the weather could shift dramatically in only moments!
