I wanted to share something different with you this week.

These are haiga that I have posted on my Sketchy Poet blog.

Buddleia Haiga

I grew up in an artist’s home;

it was second nature for me to dabble with art

since I had watched my mother draw and paint.

When my kids and I started homeschooling,

over twelve years ago,

we chose to include regular time spent

 doing drawing lessons from a book.

Rose Hip Haiga

Being a Canadian family,

we also studied the Group of Seven (famous Canadian painters) .

I have a selection of precious renditions

 that my children did of some of the most famous works.

Thanksgiving Haiga

Haiga are drawings with a haiku printed right onto the picture.

These drawings are done of items around our home.

Spring Haiga

~

Some of my favorite blogger friends also draw.

Now you know that I have followed you with a genuine interest in art.

An art exhibit intrigues me as much as a walk in the woods.

Artwork is both therapeutic to do and to observe.

I highly recommend watercolor pencils (that’s what these are done with).

They do not require the same skill level as regular watercolor painting.

Please, if you have any interest it giving it a try – just do it.

Our Creator Father made us in his image…

that’s why I believe we all have a desire to create beauty

 in whatever way we have been gifted.
