Genie


 while visiting an in between realm
a space between eyes open
and eyes closed
I met him, the Genie
he grants wishes


lovely lady he did say
your wish of wishes is granted today
open your heart
to the light of high arts
your dreams shall manifest
always
~


Enjoy Sunday Sketches

  2. hello Sophia,
    I used Prisma color art stix on the shirt and yellow light around him. They are square sticks made out of the inside of pencils, I used them on their sides. Even though I used the smooth side of this paper, it is still textured enough to look like this.

    Thank you for your lovely message.

  12. Julia,
    yes, you can borrow my genie, but you must visit the in between realm to find him. My poem speaks of how to fulfill a wish.... but maybe he has a different response for you ;-}

    Thank you for your lovely message, you made my heart smile.


    Craft Attack, I believe you are right, we all can use a genie.

    Lissa, fun to look again through your eyes, I see the compassion too.

    Jennifer,

    Thank you for taking to heart what I have shared, you have inspired a smile in me.

    warmth to all,
    T

    I found salt that is used for a salt mill, it has wonderful sizes and shapes and you can see the colour being sucked right up in it:).

    Love the paintings below especially the first one.
