Summer Art: Paintings, Photography, & Poetry

Thursday, October 27, 2022

Welcome back to Art Thursdays of my B.R.E.A.T.H.S. blog where I invite you into Brainerd’s Brushstrokes and Photography studio. During the month of October, I shared the different seasons from my perspective in acrylic paintings, iPhone photography, and a seasonal poem. The first week, I did my Autumn Art, the second week I posted my Winter Art, and last week I shared my Spring Art. This final week, I am gifting you the visual sensation of my Summer Art collection.

Summer Poetry by Jaime Brainerd

“All the Things I Love About Summer from A to Z”

Alluring aromas of alyssums in August

Backyard or beach BBQs with besties

Colorful clouds covering the coastline

Daring dives in water and sky

Exploring enchanting eucalyptus, especially rainbow

Fourth of July fireworks with friends and family

Gazing at glorious grasslands

Hawaiian hikes and hideaways

Irresistible ice cream

Joyful beach jumping in June and July

Kids flying kites

Love living life

Marvelous movies in the park

Outrageous outdoor opportunities

Pastel palms in paradise

Quiet quality time

Riding roadways and railways

Swimming with sea turtles at sunset

Taking time to rest

Ultimate underwater adventures

Visiting voluminous volcanoes on vacation

Wonderful walks along water

Xenomaniac xenogaugs on tours

Yachting off in the yonder

Zealous zebras at the zoo


Conclusion on Seasonal Art

I have been expressing my creative side for quite some time, starting with writing poetry when I was younger, to taking photographs with my cell phone, and painting pictures as an adult. Most of my paintings I have given away or sold, my photos go unseen except by me, and my poetry skills fade without practice. That is why I decided to use this space to share my different forms of artistic expression. It was thoroughly enjoyable for me to browse through my collections finding themes, creating collages, and relighting my poetic spirit to share my songs of the seasons. 


Much gratitude for reading and viewing,
