PAINT PARTY FRIDAY and HAIKU MY HEART
|ASIAN type brush painting|
Welcome to our blog where we view life through the eyes of an artist soul and explore what creativity can do to enhance the inner spirit.
(Please Note Haiku April has its own page ~ click on tab above if link doesn't take you there directly from Haiku Heights.)
Today, being Friday, it is time to explore artists who paint and poets who write haiku. Painting in a variety of modalities allows time to play, to get in touch with the inner spirit and 'let the world go by'. For me in some ways poetry helps me to do that also. So whether you paint or write or do none these, come enjoy the wonderful artists at Paint Party Friday and the excellent poets at Haiku My Heart. A big thanks to the hosts of both these blogs.
The above painting is about as 'zen like' as it gets. This week has flown by and have been busy with preparing for the art season here in Cape Ann on Rocky Neck. The fun part is creating then you need to frame them, write an artist statement, price them and you know the activity ~ I am thrilled to be doing this. So wish me luck and do visit these two blogs by clicking on the highlighted links above). They are very special. Below are my haiku.
light of the world shines
brighter it seems in spring more
risen from the dead.
cool air and wind still
april and yet winter lingers
nature wants to play.
we want to play out
earth delights, digging dirt, planting
come hither soon spring.
