Feelings #2

Yesterday my feelings were fragile,
we had planned a break by the ocean,
but had to come home early ~
I was not feeling well.
Today I had a ~~>


I had intended to draw whilst away, so not to be thwarted
I got my pencils and paper out this morning and
started some observational drawing.
But do you know what
It wasn't 'floating my boat'.


I knew exactly where my boat would float though and, do so for hours ~
yes my joy floats right here on this old computer screen,
I load some images from my picture files
then I am a happy bunny,
I play and play all day,
my calling you
might say.....

My colour surges
with haikuing hearts, mingling
always on Friday...

Is that a photograph or a painting? I think you found your niche, whatever it is. Nice haiku.

It's good to know what brings you contentment...to have a place to come home to after other explorations.

Beautiful. I think of oaks and willows. Strength and delicacy side by side.
Glad that meeting with other haiku hearts helps to set your colors free!

wow, that break just wasn't meant to be!

i was really lucky to discover and enjoy digital art when my girl was 1-2yrs, as it meant i could dabble without getting out lots of materials. i could work on an image for HOURS! loved it.

i often think about it, especially after looking at your work, but now i'm called to messier things.... ;)

we have to go with the creative gut calling.

I used to paint. Due to disabilty I can no longer do so. My canvas is now photoshop, my paintbrush is my camera and that floats my boat!

wow Sue...these flowers are stunning. There is so much mysticism and strength in them... one that I rarely see...one that's all feminine divine.

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
