Oriental Sketch for Sunday Sketches





'Dad'
for Rebecca's Remembering ~ loving memories of my Dad. He was a hard worker and we were very close until adolescence ~ rather conflictual yet as a young adult we would often have tea together. He adored his grandson and spoiled him rather well. I am grateful for the 'wise ones' ~ not perfect ~ just loving people.


Rain and Sun Rising
for  My Sunday Best Photos, Macro Monday and Favorite Photo




Shortly after Sunrise and Rain
for Our World Tuesday


haiku for Carpe Diem Haiku

  1. Great chinese painting sketch. I'm presuming you used ink for this. You have achieved some lovely loose passages.

  4. Good day Carol, what a wonderful post you provide us here. Awesome pictures and I love the haiku you have written on rough sea. Life is as a rough sea, but we know that we will arrive safely at home.

  9. A beautiful Haiku - I need to write that down - and set it above my working desk!
    The picture of the sea, with raindrops on the lens, is very special!

  38. I too have been trying to figure out how to merge some of my favorite memes. Would rather publish three weekly posts that are well thought out rather than scattering random photos around. Am hoping that will also give me more time for commenting which is as important in keeping the connections going as my own postings.

    I always want to see more of your sketches/pen and ink drawings. Loving seeing art in progress. Oh, also really enjoy your water scenes.

  57. I like the shot through the rainy window - reminds us that what we see is always mediated by something between us and nature.
