Intention is strong

An emotion of pure will

An owl on the hunt.

Art Prescription:  Our desires inform our life. If we pay attention to our wants, our needs will be fulfilled.

Hold reins with thumbs up

As if a glass of champagne

Bubbles rising up.

Sketching in the bed

My pen trails off into sleep

Next day, add color.

Art Prescription:  I did this pen and ink sketch last night in a sleepy state. Today I went back in and added colored pencil. Some folks read to sleep…I draw!

Subtle season shift

Leaves begin to brown and fall

Birds feed on thistle.

Steady in saddle

We meander along fields

Taking in country.

Plan for a trip by the sea

Destination, peace.

Oh summer…don’t go

Leave us pretty butterflies

And please, the flowers.

Art Prescription:  As much as I want the weather to cool down, I realize how much summer offers each day. My garden is a-buzz with bees, and 3-4 different butterfly species. Hummingbirds drop in for some nectar as well.

I went to sketch at the North Carolina Botanical Garden today to prepare a piece for my adult coloring class offered August 27, 2 – 4.

Now I get to color!!

Wildflower of year 2016
