A bit of total silliness

Sometimes I dont feel like doing anything structured and need a bit of throwing paint around and total silliness and this slightly odd interpretation of a sunflower is it.
A far cry from a chinese hibiscus!
I think I needed some brightness as it is another dull and windy and rainy day. I really dont like wind.
I am also trying to do my lino cutting course and not getting terribly far with it, I have sort of finished some bits but I am being terribly slow.
My trips to Adelaide always seem to leave me with a feeling of frustration although I did finally find a closer art supply shop and got some more lino for this course.
My mother was quite bright yesterday and sometimes I wonder if what we are being told is spin or not.
This Haiku is by Kyoshi and although the Kyoshi I know is not this one it could well be.

This old hat, stolen
from a scarecrow...
How fiercely
the cold rain pelts it!

I loved the bright colors and bold flowers! Glad to know your monther was feeling well.
We have just arrived in Madrid, after 2 months, you cannot imagine how much house cleaning I need to do now. So it is back to reality....and soon back to work. Greetings from Spain!

Sometimes one needs bright colours to cheer oneself up - maybe that is why you need them at present, particularly if you are worried about your mother. I love that cheerful little painting. Do keep us informed about your forthcoming trip - we must try to meet if we can.

Such a chirpy cheerful little painting!
Regarding the haiku, there are usually 2 or 3 interpretations if the original is in Japanese
.....I do like this one though I don't know the others.
