A CREATIVE HARBOR
PAINT PARTY FRIDAY and HAIKU MY HEART
ArtMuse Dog and Carol welcome you to our blog where we see life through the 'eyes of an artist's soul' and explore what creativity can do to enhance the 'inner spirit'.
This is my Friday post and one of my favorites because I get to see wonderful paintings by artists at Paint Party Friday and inspiring haiku by writers at Haiku My Heart. (click link to go there)
The painting above is another Asian brush painting done from a photo on a greeting card. It was not copyrighted and even still it is my own rendition of this wolf family. I put a tentative matte around it and will decide later how I want to frame it. Hope you enjoy it and will continue to read below what I have written about creativity and maybe even comment rather than rushing off to the next blog. Below are my haiku. Enjoy.
grey day lingers on
whispers of sunny days
beach sand tickling my toes.
living each moment well
letting grey days go by.
cold, numbing faces, bodies
passing soon, crocus up
warming hearts today.
As I used to write in my previous blog, Share the Creative Journey, everyone is creative and sometimes the 'inner spirit' just craves to create and other times it is dormant. For me, historically my creativity was manifested in the 'world of traditional work' and being a wife and mother which was a wonderful life. Yet, the 'seeker' in me wanted to paint and write. So finally in my thirties, despite losing many significant people in my life at a fairly 'youngish age' I began to 'dabble'. Now, thanks to supportive people including PPF and HMH that I am linked to today I am beginning to do less dabbling and more working. It is work like I have never felt before ~ yet it is 'play' as well. For most of my life I have tried to love whatever I was doing. Today, I love what I am working on ~ creating and enhancing my 'spirit' through writing and painting. I hope you are doing what you love ~ at least part of the time. If not, what are you waiting for?
Hugs and namaste,
