Oil Paintings in miniature with poetry in miniature (Haiku)

All my posts lately have been photo challenges and I have so enjoyed them and the friends I have met and sites I have visited through joining in. But it is about time to put some paintings up again. On my facebook page (EvAntArtTas…..link button to the right) I have been putting on a daily art post after being nominated for the 3/5 art challenge. My fist day I showed different approaches to flowers/botanical art and my second day I showed some of my carefully rendered miniatures in oil paint. For these miniatures I have written a haiku as I find it somewhat incongruous that miniature art (painting) and the short Haiku verse are tiny creations in their respective fields but both have more rules governing structure than their larger counterparts. Somewhat strange too, that a person who likes bending the rules and extending or overlapping beyond the boxed categories is interested in the tight controls of the forms. But then I was an orderly Maths and Science teacher before I released my creative urges.

    I absolutely LOVE Tasmania (and think I would live there if the weather was kinder) and you’ve captured its ruggedness and other-worldly colours beautifully. By the way, I have nominated you for a Liebster Award. The details are on my latest post at https://paypackandfollow.wordpress.com
    I know awards aren’t everyone’s cup of tea and I won’t be offended if you decline. But I hope you will accept it in the spirit it is given, – I think your blog is awesome! Sandy 🙂
