Double Original Friday – Three January Haiku

JanuaryHaikuThe drawing sessions at the open studio I sporadically attend always start with a series of short poses, each lasting about 2 minutes – really meant for you to “warm up” and capture gestures and movement. My warm up sketches usually end up in the recycling bin and so I’ll often do more than one pose on the same piece of paper. For some reason, this one struck me and I saved it. The immediacy of its creation made me think of haiku and how they capture a moment in time. With my 2 minute doodle I paired 3 haiku written at moments sitting at my desk at work. In the immediacy of their creation, I let the syllable count vary a little bit on these. Drawing (marker on paper), composition, and haiku by me. Happy Friday!


    1. Thank you so much! It’s an experience that happens when you work in an open lab space and occasionally a few research flies escape from a nearby lab and wind up circling, lost and confused, near your desk 🙂


    1. Thank you! My 2014 calendar was an entire year dedicated to Mark Rothko, and it turned out to be one of my favorite calendars of all time. 2015’s has some big shoes to fill!
