Hello my beautiful Haikuesday poet. My energy is way low today, lingering somewhere in the lowest knuckle on my right most toe but with a little inspiration from Jenbo’s poem and Danica Sills’ work on YouTube I took a few hours and created this:
Nails scrape skin and flesh.
Warm blood splashes on white snow.
Yet, no death for her.

On an artistic level
I think this piece could use some more work, but I am pretty happy with how I was able to create a little atmosphere with the snow. I was also forcing myself to experiment with some brushes I normally avoid. Rather than my usual 2 brush combo (flat color and digital airbrush) I used a little coarse airbrush, smoke, and rough pastels to bring some new textures in. What do you think?
On a personal level
I’m off to chug some tea now, but I look forward to reading your clever poetry on Twitter today ❤
