Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of the artist's soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.
Note: Blog Hop every Monday ^_^
Today we are bordering on insanity ~ LOL ~ not really. I couldn't create this blog post due to 'google' and 'blogger' making changes midstream. So my 'muse' was feeling very frustrated as it is the post for Friday. For those of you 'in the know' Friday means Paint Party Friday with Eva and Kirstin and Haiku My Heart with Rebecca. Both groups are wonderfully creative people.
The photo above is an Asian type brush painting that I created within the last week. Some will like it and others may think the face looks dirty which I did at first. Then I decided to go with it because when one is fishing or has been fishing one is not very sparkly and ready for the ball. So here he is. 'Aiden'
The haiku that I have written is below:
ever on my mind
beating heart yearning love one
stay close, with me, Tao.
wandering thoughts, drunk
like a monkey mind rambling
come home to center.
silly girl in huff
nothing all important that
laugh at self, be free.
So enjoy the artists and poets. Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs and namaste,
We love, love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day ~ especially ArtMuse Dog ^_^
Every Monday we have our blog hop, Magical Monday Meme for anyone who is the least bit creative. Share what you create, needlework, photos, paintings, poems, decorating, whatever it is that you create. It is all magic.
QUOTE FOR THE DAY: ' To effect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.' (Henry David Thoreau)
When I read your last poem, I couldn't help but smile. I think you were describing me.ReplyDelete
I actually admire all your water color paintings, since it's something I can't do, but I can admire those who have the talent.

An adorable painting, Carol -- I'm in awe of your creativity. :)ReplyDelete
I noticed the change in Blogger too. It's different, but I like the clean look of it - it's always something, huh?!ReplyDelete
Aiden looks lovely! :) Wish I had some fishing skills. :)ReplyDelete
Loving your gone fishing. Happy PPF Carol, Annette xReplyDelete
Beautiful. Love the painting and love the haiku. Happy PPFReplyDelete
Nice drawing, sure that accompanies very well with the haikus. SaludosReplyDelete
Happy PPF, great day for fishing...LOLReplyDelete
Nicely done ... Happy Weekend!ReplyDelete
I think the Japanese style of your painting is appropriate to haiku. Everything has that feel today. Serene. Renewal. Coming home.ReplyDelete
She's so cute, and she has the right idea there!ReplyDelete
This is wonderful!ReplyDelete
Lovely painting and haiku!ReplyDelete

Blogger has been a pain with the shift to the new format. Awk!!ReplyDelete
I hate when I suffer from monkey-mind. ;)
your painting is wonderful, a fabulous pieceReplyDelete
as is your haikus!
Seriously, so cute! I love it!ReplyDelete
Great haiku and picture - and the last line is good advice.ReplyDelete
Very cute, and the face is just perfect! Patsy fromReplyDelete
That is a really nice painting. :))ReplyDelete
Blogger is the frenemy we all have... most of the time she is a dear friend, but then suddenly she turns on us... glad you got through the problems and posted this... i like the sweet little face...xxReplyDelete
Love the painting of the littlr indian girl. Blogger has nerved me terribly this week again, it can only get better - I hope! Hugs, ValerieReplyDelete
what a wonderful, colorful painting. beautiful!ReplyDelete
I love the expression in your painting. Happy PPF!ReplyDelete
Hi Carole and ArtMuseDog!! Great painting and haikus today :) I think the little boy looks just right - dirty face and all! I found meaning in your haiku today...ReplyDelete
I needed no explanation of her face. Looks like shadows to me, maybe like tilting her head downward to get her delicate eyes out of the harsh sun. I really am liking these Asian Style paintings. I might be writing you about a deal for a set of them. But I'm busy now, leaving town tomorrow. I love the Haiku. It has very sweet sentiments.ReplyDelete
You would love Teri C from 'Painted Daisies' as she loves Haiku too. Both are fun works. And yes Blogger struck me too. Arrgh. But I downloaded Google Chrome and use it now and it works great. but I didn't make it my default whatever and it still works.ReplyDelete
Lovely haiku! Thanks for the kind comments on my blog! I will try to come back f or your blog hop!ReplyDelete
Love your Asian style of painting the little one. Really done nicely Carol. I like it! Your Haiku's also carry much meaning. Thank you. Have a wonderful weekend.ReplyDelete
I really love your painting. I think the expression on her face is perfect.ReplyDelete
I just love your fisher child with the dirty face--utterly charming, and words to match.ReplyDelete
The drawing reminds me of ME, as a little girl... I was a 'boy-girl', climbed trees and always had a dirty face! Love the haiku too!ReplyDelete
Each speaks to me.
Lovely linework in your painting.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for sharing.
I like your fisherman, and you're right, who cleans up before heading out for a fishing trip?ReplyDelete
i am in the camp of loving the face of your little fisherman. adorable and compelling.ReplyDelete
as are your thoughtful haiku.
thank you for your light and love.
Gone Fishing is very cute...so is the Haiku!!ReplyDelete
I love your gone fishing painting!ReplyDelete
