Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Our journey into the modern arts is on full speed, the first week is almost done. We have already seen modern arts sculptures and today I love to inspire you through a painting titled "Mystical Threshold" and it's painted by renown intuitive artist Joan Fullerton. Here is a short introduction by herself:
"Born into a Wyoming ranch family, I grew up with a deep regard for the natural world. For me the subtle nuances as well as the awesome power of nature's beauty, made the solitude of the isolated prairie sacred. While raising 3 children, I studied watercolor with Edgar Whitney, Frank Webb, Charles Reid and other nationally known watercolorists. In 1985 I returned to college and achieved BFA and MFA degrees in painting from the University of Wyoming. I was a college art instructor from 1990 to 2003 in Cheyenne, WY. And in 2003 I fulfilled a long-time dream when I moved to Taos, NM, to paint full-time. After 8 successful years in Taos, I am now in the Denver, CO area, painting and teaching workshops."

"Magical Threshold" has also something of the impressionists, because it is an impression of a lake surrounded by nature in autumn colors. Maybe this makes the connection to haiku. Maybe you can remember that I once said: "haiku is an impression of a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water" and as we take this idea than I think it's possible to create an impression inspired on this beautiful painting by Joan Fullerton.
threshold of mystery
And to conclude this episode, I recovered a haiku from my archives:
the deep purple of the night disappears
in dew drops
I hope I have inspired you.
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until August 9th at noon (CET). Have fun!
