Across a wild field

Slender Blue Flags and Spring Vetch

Purple and pink waves.

Art Prescription:  This is one of the twelve designs for the Art Prescription Deck: A Dose of Coloring Inspiration!! Whoot. Coming soon to my Etsy shop. I went to the NC Botanical Garden with my pen and ink Sunday. Best inspiration ever to be right there with the source!

Little hose-house toad
Lives under a green cover
Above the farm well.

Art prescription: As I went about feeding the horses this morning, I found other creatures sharing the land. A spider who lives on the fencing, lots of birds, and grasshoppers, a couple of deer crackling through the woods. And this little hose-house resident.

Art Prescription Deck 1

Sweet gums are the first

Splashes of yellow appear

Leaves begin to change.

Art Prescription: Driving home from the farm today I began to notice a few patches of yellow here and there. In our yard it is the sweet gum trees that are the first to start changing color and dropping their leaves. The cooler mornings are a sure sign that fall is here.

Colored pencil and ink on index card:

Someone to swim with

Come along by my side and

We will live big life.

Art Prescription:  You can look at your days, weeks, months, years, in one of two ways. One, with total gratitude for all that you are and your health, and all that you have. Or two,  a glass half empty all the time, focusing on every little hang nail that comes your way. Wow! Now that’s some deep decisions! Swim….

Sea Horses

She knows her domain

Is at one with elements

Shows you who she is.

Art Prescription:  A friend of mine recently reminded me, “If people show you who they are, believe them.” Once again I’m drawn to the deeper consciousness that is our animal world. Always asking what can we learn?

This is my second sea turtle. The first one I did with alcohol inks which was fun and bright and bold. This one is softer, done with watercolor. 8 1/2 x 11 watercolor

Simple boundaries

Ancient way of the horse herd

Communication.

Art Prescription:  Boundaries…we all have them. I’ve done a lot of work this past year on learning about boundaries, including a course with Pixie Lighthorse called Boundaries Bootcamp. Thank you Pixie. And thank you horses. As I watch your simple and most of the time gentle interactions you keep your boundaries and those of others clean and neat. Pixie would say, “keep your side of the street clean.” As I get busier with art and an exciting launch coming soon!, I find myself needing to set better boundaries, where I choose to spend my energy or not. This is good stuff folks! It means getting clearer and more balanced in your life and the ongoing daily exchange of energy. Aho!
