Taupe colored clouds move

In with a cold winter front

Hang tight little blooms.

Art Prescription:  All this warm weather here in North Carolina has encouraged everything to bloom early. Now tonight a front is moving back in.

I love the simple elegance of brush painting. I’ll make this one available in my Etsy shop!!

Watercolor with my chop that says “hope”

February shrub 72.jpg

It’s before you knew

Free from guilt or blame, simple

Just a shear pleasure.

Art Prescription:  Spring moves forth with such determination…

A field of purple

Highlight against winter trees

Power of a few.

Art Prescription:  A stand alone wildflower is minuscule, but put them in a field with others, and you have a stampede of color.

He sings his heart out

Fills February air with

Sweetness and a goal.

Art Prescription:  Such an early spring! The birds, bees, and buds, are doing their thing.

With a playful mind

A bag of sunflower seed

Becomes an art tote.

Art Prescription:  I asked myself, “what if.” I was actually thinking about the bags that Finn’s feed comes in, I’ll try that next. But on hand was an almost empty bag of sunflower seed…so here is a little birdy art tote!! Full art copyright goes to Southern States…ooooh maybe I should show this to them!

Anxious to burst forth

Buds on trees wait their turn to

Add color to woods.

Art Prescription:  One of my favorites…the Pink Dogwood.

Dream of June garden

Lost in the scent of flowers

Where butterflies fly.

Art Prescription: Played with mixed media on a YES canvas today. Laid acrylic paint down with a brayer, then added some collage and other marks. Then wrote in French, “Look for me in the garden, where butterflies fly and I’m lost in the flowers.”
