Friday Writings #36: Sunset:
how golden these clouds
to a passing day causing
wonder of glare
to stop and watch
ponder with nostalgia
words and colours

Happy you linked to Art For Fun Friday
Love the images of the passing day.
Engaging pictures; lovely words.
I love how your creative mind works. Loose ends is fascinating and then your portrait art is fabulous. You really captured his likeness. Thank you for joining Friday Face Off.
Hi Gillena! Your Alexander Calder sketch is lovely. I really like that you used the blue. "Loose Ends" is perfect! ☺
I love that those clouds stopped a bit, for them to watch but also for us to marvel them.
I like to your "Loose Ends" drawings. Perhaps you have created a new art form. Maybe assign meaning to each or let viewers call. I'd call these two :Driving on muddy roads.
Thanks for your appreciation Colleen

I love the first sketch, it has a bit of a Miro-feel to it. Have a lovely weekend. Hug from Holland.
Thank you for your appreciation Marit
I have to check up 'kiskadee', and what a lovely bird it is.
Your first drawing reminds me of an Alexander Calder mobile, and I like that portrait you done of him.
And what a lovely tribute to Beverley.
Thank you for your appreciation Cheong Lee san
Always... I learn something new from you Gillena! I love your line drawings! And your haiku just makes me happy, like the music. And your tribute to your blogging friend is lovely. Thank you for sharing it with us.
