Art, Poetry and Photograph Monday

Watercolor in progress for Creative Every Day

The sun shone on A Creative Harbor today in MA.
 After a weekend of blizzard conditions needless to say we were all elated and proceeded to venture out and take some photos that I will show later in the week. Very few sidewalks were clear so ArtMuse Dog and I had a very brief 'photo walk'. Then went to my brothers for conversation and a hot cup of tea and to see the 'valentines kids.' They were busy with Papa creating all kinds of colorful creations. I even got a valentine hand made necklace.

  1. So glad you survived the storm. Your Valentines kids are cute! What fun they had making their creations. Your watercolor is pretty! Lovely haiku and post. Wishing you a happy week ahead.

  2. I am surprised you are about so soon. Thank goodness I read where others are not as lucky. Love family pictures especially grams and grands. Blessings for a better week.

  3. stork cycling through each person - that's a great haiku... and what a fun valentine's day activity! i'll ask my little cousins to make handmade valentine's cards for their mom and dad ^^

  4. The Valentine kids look like they are having a great time with Grandpa. Have a wonderful week:)

  5. your watercolor is so soft and lovely, the haiku I found perfect to accompany the beautiful family photos,

  6. So glad you were able to get out today and visit your brother and those cute Valentine kids!
    You will have to show us your watercolor when you are finished.

  7. Such great talent, I love your painting!

  8. The kids look as if they are having so much fun making their valentines. I would think that Art Muse Dog would have needed some stilts to go on a walk after that snow! Have a wonderful week!

  9. Those are sure cute kids
    Sometimes the stork does good work


  10. Slowly, slowly the light returns.
    I look forward to seeing the painting here soon.

  11. Those are the sweetest hearts ever.

    A Touch of Orange
    Would love to hear your thoughts.

  12. The children look content in staying in where it is warm and creating their valentines. I don't envy you with all that snow - don't want it here. :) Your sweet furbaby has the sweetest face.
    Thanks for stopping by and nice comment.
    Have a great week.

  13. The water colour's coming on nicely.
    Thanks for a cool post.

  14. I like the linear patterns in your MoM image - the horizontals of the roof against and the curvy branches in the front. The touches of orange look good against the blue/greys too.
    Thank you for sharing on Mandarin Orange Monday:)

  15. Beautiful collages / images you show. Wish you a good new week :) Hanne Bente

  16. In progress - but it's already pretty. Love it!
