Sketchers,Poets and Photographers

'Mini'  oil creations and pen for Sunday Sketches



As I indicated historically, I am combining posts as I need time for creating and life issues. So this post is for Sunday, Mon and Tues. In this post the focus of creativity is on artists who sketch and paint, and other creative arts, poets who write haiku and photographers who do macro photos and photographers from around the world on Tuesday. I have been busy making mini paintings for the Holiday Fair and hope to enter some more art work or photographs into a Holiday Art Event. Wish me luck.

'Cape Ann MA after the storm sky' 



As a rule we generally receive the most incredible evening sky around sun set after there has been a storm. The above photo is of the beautiful sky that graced our presence.

These three days we are sharing with:

  32. Hi Carol!
    Our geraniums are still alive, but I don't know if they will survive the strong winds and the coming snow, we'll see...
    Beautiful pics, thanks for sharing.
    Your red, orange and yellow haiku match the season beautifully.
    Love your red palette of nature.
    It was difficult for me to read the one about orange (maybe I have to change my glasses)
    A hug.
    :)
