Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.


Summer Glory

I wondered about a Fireweed haiku and if anyone has written one.
Found a poem, not about Fireweed probably, and not a haiku - by Yosa Buson

The following is just part of the poem. It is a little melancholy, but nice.

You are a plum flower floating on the water
floating down the river swiftly you leave
I am a weeping willow on the river's edge
my shadow is deep in the water
I cannot come with you

There were a couple of comments about the parasol. 
It worked so well!   It is from BestBrella.

So, the painting was fun and quick, but there are some things ...
... not quite right. It's ok.

Does anyone know, or can you write a Fireweed haiku? 
I would love to read it!
