Catch a falling leaf

And put it in your pocket

Save for a study!

Art Prescription:  I love the bright reds and oranges of autumn. And I also love the muted and softer hues of golden yellow, burnt siena, and peach.

Oh so still on trail

A grey ball of fluff, oh dear…

Just playing possum!

Art Prescription:  On our morning hike at Mason Farm we came across a seemingly unfortunate scene. As we got closer Sam said, it’s breathing. We circled around through the woods. As soon as we were on down the path, the possum took off to continue meandering in the woods. Nature! Full of surprise.

Eight o’clock, eighteen!

Blue birds line up on the fence

Ground frozen solid!

Art Prescription:  Out to help feed horses. 18 degrees. Oh yea, I’ve got this. Warmed up quickly and enjoyed early morning scenes of blue birds. Art journal page…

Getting to know you

I look into big brown eyes

Searching for a yes.

Art Prescription:  Went out to play with Finn today. Each day we get to know each other a tiny bit more. This building of a relationship, of love and trust, is an amazing process. I’m so honored he is letting me know him!

Back to studio for a little painting. Watercolor and Sumi Ink.

Peach Poppies III

Clouds roll in, cold front

Drafts of air take leaf remains

I dream of poppies.

Art Prescription:  Rainy cold day. Good thing the imagination can take you away!
