Sunday Sketches and Post Cards from Paradise
|Asian brush style painting and haiku|
Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.
It is the old adage 'practice makes perfect'. Well I have been practicing both Asian brush style painting and writing haiku and am improving but have no desire to be 'perfect.' I just want to be the best I can be at whatever it is I am doing. If I fall short, I have learned from Taoism that 'I am right where I am suppose to be.' Much freer than driven perfectionism don' t you think? Not to mention how my 'spirit' still feels good even when I am not at my best.
Today's post is for Sunday and that means Sunday Sketches and Post Cards from Paradise. Above is a photo of my most recent Asian style brush painting with a haiku that reads:
bursting with buds, bloom
sensational gift of nature
grateful ever nature.
Sunday Sketches is about sketches; it is also about illustration type paintings. Post Cards from Paradise is about photography and where one finds 'paradise'. Below is a photo of one place that I find 'paradise'.
Explore both blogs, take time to comment and support their creative works and have fun.
Please take some time to Honor the Veterans during this Memorial Day in the USA. 'Freedom is not free.' They and their families paid a big price for us to live in freedom. Thanks.
Hugs and namaste,
