I normally don’t do prints of my paintings- I want my art time to focus on exploring new work! But when the Washing Street Artis’s Co-op announced their Haiku show, I knew I had to do it! The premise- write a Haiku to go with a framed print of your painting. Bliss!
The last night on Assateague, I watched the sun set across Tom’s Cove over Chincoteague. Conflicting feelings battled within me- exaltation at the week and a half we had just experienced, wonder at the ineffable beauty and endless fascination of the world, deep sadness at saying goodbye. Fish leapt, and their landing made a musical plink. Mark teased me for trying to catch one one on film despite the dying light. (I did :-))
Tom’s Cove twilight, day
fades, breeze kisses fresh sunburn
Splash! The last fish leaps
If your visual aesthetic prefers, I will remove the written haiku from the frame before delivery.
