Sketchers and Photographers Sunday


PEACE





'HAIGA' ~ Asian Style Brushwork and Haiku


Sunday Post ~ Sketchers and Photographers ~ Happy with the first photo as it truly depicts 'peace and serenity to me. The bottom photo is a sketch ~ just that a 'sketch' as I will do this over but wanted something to post for Sunday Sketchers. It has just been 'one of those weeks'. Good things but some self induced stress thrown in for 'good measure.' Tired and thinking in 'cliches.' Thus, my creativity suffered.

We are sharing today with:

  4. Sorry you're tired. I know how draining that can be.
    That photo really does look peaceful and serene. I hope you're having one of those kind of weekends. :)

  6. I have spotted your chop, and your name in Chinese.

    And I also spotted a hammock, so peacefully.

    Have a great weekend.

    Fall is here but that image evokes long lazy days of summer. Lovely reflection!

  10. The photograph is beautiful and I can just imagine the peace sleeping in that hammock. Your sketch is great considering you think you are in a creative temporary slump...happens to us all.
    Have fun:)

  21. Those unproductive weeks feed the productive ones for me. I've learned to embrace the down time...used to really stress about them but they turn out to be totally useful. I like your peace drawing! It has good composition :)

  31. Hammocks are always synonymous with peacefulness for me. I don't think you can stay stressed when lazing in a hammock. Your sketch goes perfectly with your photo!

  33. hope you have a less stressful week... maybe you need some distraction so I could always fed ex Phantom and Sinus over to keep you and art muse dog company... that would be the end of any peace, but you would have fun...xx
