August is leaving

Long hot days, cooler mornings

September at door.

Index August posey

Adult coloring

A garden on paper for

Colored pencil fun.

Art Prescription:  Tomorrow I’m teaching an adult coloring class at the NC Botanical Garden. “Teaching” coloring doesn’t really represent what I do. What I will really be doing is giving adults permission to play. To allow themselves the freedom to put color to paper while their blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing all slow down to a meditative state.

Here is my colored version of the pen and ink:

Wildflower 2016 color 72

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.

Owl greens

Hold reins with thumbs up

As if a glass of champagne

Bubbles rising up.

Art Prescription:  Did a private lesson today on Finn! So much good stuff…gonna be sore! Can’t wait to start my Women’s Intuitive Riding!! Working on an alternative palette of colors.

Horse greens 72

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!

Horse colored pencil

Subtle season shift

Leaves begin to brown and fall

Birds feed on thistle.

Art Prescription:  This colored pencil piece is based on a photo by Mary Parker Sonis, an NC wildlife photographer.

Warbler 72

Steady in saddle

We meander along fields

Taking in country.

Art Prescription:  Long trail ride on Finn this morning. So beautiful to explore the land from the back of a horse.
