(meaning a haiku with a picture or photo)
Welcome to my blog where I view life from the eyes of an artist soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.
I am still in my playing mode with my Asian brush paintings and exploring with brush, paints and adding a haiku to create a 'haiga.' The above photo is of one of my 'haiga' creations. Because I have an Artist Reception this Saturday evening, I have needed to 'let go ' and just play and not try and create anything too seriously. Thus, the end result of 'play' is my above creation and two haiku below for the two blogs that I thoroughly enjoy on Friday and they are:
Paint Party Friday
Haiku My Heart
There are lots of wonderful artists and poets at these sites. I have also written two more haiku as I tend to like to write three haiku.
deep blue sea today
ocean sparkling after rain
sun brilliant rays.
near sea delightful
soothing my inner spirit
summer day playing.
Hope you enjoy all the wonderful artists and poets and their varied styles of expression.
Wishing you a happy and loving weekend.
Hugs and namaste,
We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day, especially, ArtMuse Dog ^_^
She thinks Google + is pretty neat also.
There is a blog hop here every Monday, Magical Monday Meme for all creative people and all mediums.
QUOTE FOR THE DAY: 'It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey that matters in the end.'
