Lovely paintings Gillena-Christine

My name is Erika. said...

Your flowers are lovely Gillena, and I like the effect. When I first looked I thought maybe you had collaged the page with paper pieces before painting in the flowers. I hadn't noticed that before. And those crows are great. I hope you have a lovely end of the week and weekend ahead. Hugs-Erika

you caught the movement and exuberance of the moment. I can just hear the wings

I adore the flowers, Gillena. I have never owned poster paints, so I am intrigued by how you used them. I've always been mesmerized by crows. Really great painting, too.

Glad you're having fun with your painting. I'm having fun sharing it here. And I love the haiku.

rallentanda said...

I love your haiku as well. Is that masked movie star looking blonde bombshell you ?
I'm surprised Hollywood scouts have not discovered you yet:)

DVArtist said...

I am loving your poster paint art. Very lovely indeed. I am so glad that you and I enjoy the same music. How can one not like Nina Simon? Have a great weekend.

Magaly Guerrero said...

I really love the painting of the birds. They look so joyous, especially the one in the middle. I love how that painting contrasts with the haiku and balances it too, how it makes me think of tranquil joy.

Due to your considerable influence, I replenished my supply of alcohol ink paint yesterday. I use Yupo Paper to create my paintings. Love everything you share with us Gillena.

Aloha Gillena! Very cool drawings. I especially like the crows. You’ve got me wanting to try poster paints. I like your poem, too. My new waking time is the moment before the birds make themselves known.

Lea said...

I love, love your haiku, Gillena! It is so visual! And goes perfectly with Nina's "Feeling Good." Thanks for the art and food inspiration!Yum! I have never had salted fish!

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Dawn is a magical time of day. So glad that you are participating in the magic!

Rajani said...

Sounds like fun- art and saltfish and haiku!

Gillena Cox said...

Thank you for your appreciation Lea; (salted fish we Trinis say saltfish) used to be a cheap alternative to meat when i was growing up. But it gradually creeped in our tables as a cultural icon and now it is as expensive as any other protein item.

I like the image you painted in the haiku. It seems that time has stood still.
Poster colours are great to paint with too. :)
