Short, long, summary of a life

Fridays Art: Still Life

Leave a comment

Not much to say about Still Life, a simple watercolor study of fruit in a bowl. The bowl was, is, a wooden one we picked up somewhere and still resurfaces occasionally to hold fruit, or some other snack, or munchies. The fruit, delicious, the pear juicy – hmmm. More than a simple study after all, a memory, a taste of the past with promises of the future.

Fridays Art: Red Canoe

Red Canoe

It’s the week after “opening day” and time to get out fishing. I never go on opening day, way too crowded, too many non-fishers making their only appearance of the year. Hey, not that I don’t like fishing with others but unless it’s in a canoe, or a boat, I’d rather not be within rod length of each other. Crossed and tangled lines, limited drift, poor etiquette, all sap the enjoyment from the outing. But this weekend? Time to wet a fly, see who,s coming to dinner…

Fridays Art: Sunday’s Child

Sunday’s Child, watercolor, private collection, was one of those serendipitous moments on a sketching day in early spring when I was exploring an old mansion and its grounds. There were two formal walled gardens. I turned into one and there was the perfect picture. A moment of life frozen in time.

Welcome to Friday Art, a new feature on Haiku Journey. I’ll be sharing some of my artwork, sketches, watercolors, collage, etc. every Friday. This collage, “In Cherry Blossom Time” may look familiar since it’s the basis for the header image here on Haiku Journey. It honors some time I spent in Japan while serving in Navy.
