Artists, Photographers and Poets Friday


Time for Paint Party Friday ~ Pen and Ink w/wc and Brush Ink



Welcome to our Friday post with creations of art, photos and haiku (poetry). Most of my photography will be from Cape Ann MA where I live now. It is winter here and today was a single digit morning. Used to ski, downhill and cross country and thinking maybe snow shoes to aid in accepting winter months. For now, though, ArtMuse Dog and I will just walk and see what photography we can create for this blog; plus stay warm.


Redheads ~ Back to drawing them. I come from a family of Redheads ~ hence my intrique.





'Sea Smoke' over the Harbor ~ Air was so Cold!















We hope you enjoyed our post with photography, art and haiku and will come visit again. We love to have you stop by.


We are sharing today with these creative bloggers?

  1. My stepdaughter is a redhead! I've also had two former BFFs that were redheads. I've never met one that didn't have a dynamic personality. Love the art, poetry, and the quote.

  16. Carol, Happy New Year! Looks like you are off to a great start. I love the redheads! My gdaughter is a redhead and I often make my painted ladies have red hair. Your haiku and your photos are great. Single digits! Wow! That's cold.

    ReplyDelete
  17. That photo of the water just has cold written all over it. Then the 'redhead' drawings are ablaze with warmth. Great contrast this week.

  20. My first wife was a redhead, and embodied all the cliches and stereotypes.
    The good was great; the bad was horror beyond imagination.

    Love your haiku.

    I've always struggled with the "everything is beautiful" concept.
    There is too much real ugliness and evil in the world for me to accept that notion.

    Cheers!

  21. fabulous sea smoke pic! Yes, yesterday's do seem to 'flit by' too quickly, but the key is to enjoy each moment....

    ReplyDelete
  22. Your blog is always so full, colourful and rich - real delight, and very soft touch on your haiku there...with time flying, drifting by. Appreciate your graceful comments very much.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes time flies. If only we could enjoy each and every moment before it's gone. I have many redheads in my family as well...FUN!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hello dear Carol! What a beautiful haiku this is... poignant and true, and how happy I am to have this precious moment with you, now. I too come from a line of redheads... Have a beautiful first weekend of the new year!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Smashing post and of course as usual I love it all.....Happy PPF, Annette x.

  28. You are packing a lot of beauty into these Friday posts. I love your Redheads, in fact, I prefer all my mermaids be red haired.
    Winter. Snowshoes, you say? Did you know I make snowshoes? I do. If you'd like to see them and hear more about them, let me know. They are each one-of-a-kind and heirloom quality.
    Now that I have shamelessly tried to solicit business, I will go on to say your Haiku is also a bright spot on this page today.

    Peace

  40. Mollie says hi to Art Muse Dog, and so does my new grand-dog puppy Pippin. I just got home from playing with her. I loved your haiku and the photos are beautiful, but I could feel your chill in my bones. I'm not so good with cold weather. Happy new year.

    ReplyDelete

  43. Hi Carol, i am finally here after a long deciphering how to do that from G+, haha! Your arts and photos depicts all cold and melancholy, that smoke on the see even with the bright light conveys real cold and it transcends to me here in our hot clime. Let me keep you warm with my tropical colors in my two blogs! keep warm and regards.

    ReplyDelete
  44. That's a lovely gateway, the monochrome really enhances the texture.

    ReplyDelete

  58. Carol...Love your drawings....they are such sweet artwork. I am always sketching. It brings me such pleasure. Your Maine shot is a reminder to my husband of his 3 past summers hiking the mountains of Maine and New Hampshire....and he is going back again this year. He ADORES your state.
