This boy and my time on the farm reassures me that all is well.

Again I watch trees

Sway in the wind as rain pelts

Already wet ground.

Hi guys! Goodness I got busy.

I’m working on this custom baby name.

Base done and now I can add fun critters.

Sound of horse clip-clop

Wood burning somewhere near-bye

Organic country.

Art Prescription: my work with horses fills all my senses:

Each one-of-a-kind

Comes with its own history

Unique attributes.

Art Prescription: All species are…

Today I went to a workshop at Moonbird Soulful Living. We learned Shiboro, an ancient method of dying fabrics with indigo.

The process is quite interesting as you have to de-oxygenate the vat to make the indigo effective. Your pieces comes out green, but as the fabric is exposed to air, and oxidizes, it the turns brilliant indigo blue!

There are lots of ways to create resists with objects and tying, similar to tie-dye. You can also use bees wax to paint a resist right on your fabric.

I did two tea towels and a long-sleeved T-shirt. This was great fun! I can see exploring this medium more!

Saying, “I love you.”

Art Prescription: What brings you joy? Do you seek it out often?
