Flip-flap of bare feet

Last day of September now

Trees full of black birds.

Art Prescription:  As the birds fly south for winter, children spend their final days running in bare-feet. Soon they will need a jacket and gloves. I love the changing of seasons. Like life everything ebbs and flows.

Fall meditation

Morning walk, collection, gifts

From nature’s bearings.

Art Prescription:  Who doesn’t love a collection? Eyes to the ground on my morning walk, I found much to collect and arrange.



A mare and her foal

Tender moment by the woods

Motherly essence.

Art Prescription:  Spent my morning at the farm riding Finn with my Women’s Intuitive Riding group. I always leave there floating on air, as if every worry in my world has evaporated into the ethers.

I think I’m finished with this mare and her foal. Feedback welcome…

All about romance

You leave a hidden love note

For them to find love.

Art Prescription:  After 25 years of marriage I still love a hand-written note from my husband! Even if its “put the clothes in the dryer.” In this day of digital communications a piece of paper with hand-writing speaks to our hearts. We see the individual and their hand, different for every person in the world, like fingerprints.

She sits on the pier

Overlooks her cove, the sea

Comes and goes with tides.

Art Prescription:  The seagulls were of course charming…Playing with crayons, so fun!! Try it! Watercolor background and then crayon sketching.

A Digby boat launch

Out into grey-blue waters

Working piece of art.

Art Prescription:  Hi folks! Last two days I’ve had technical difficulty, aka got a new iPhone and don’t know how everything works yet!! In the meantime I’ve finished my first Nova Scotia painting. It’s kind-of intimidating to try and capture the romance and color we saw while there.
