Artists and Poets Friday


Another 'Blessing Bowl' Asian still painting ~ WIP


I have continued to work on my 'blessing bowl' series of paintings for the Sketchbook Project. These three delightful ladies popped into the painting and even though I don't feel it is finished I rather like them. There is a smaller one that I also did in the photo below. Below that photo are my haiku.


Another version of the Blessing Bowl Series






haiku

nature being bold
whirling her energy
heart prays for beings.
-o-


hurricane Isaac
seasonal rage on blue moon time
gentle beings love.
-o-

love now, love strongly
 you need, you have, sufficient
looking no further.
-o-
