July

Early morning crow

Announcing heat of the day

Sweat rolls down my cheek.

Art Prescription: I love being outside, and in July it’s harsh. The sun beats down on you, heat rises off of pavement, trees wilt, leaves curl, all thirsty for rain.

The Diva Chronicles

Hi folks,

It’s been a while since I caught you up. I’m doing great!

I got to go to the beach and run around with the seagulls:

That was fun, but going to the farm and rolling in horse poop still tops the beach! Course, I always have to get a bath after:

Me and Matisse continue to bond: (are you serious?):

My athletic prowess is increasing everyday:

Take your time

Slow and steady now

Dragonflies dip down and swoon

It is so July.

Art Prescription: And July means hot. Heated tempers, sweating to no end, everyone is on edge.

How to stay clear of everyone’s frustrations? art!

Started this in my backyard:

Work in Progress

At the beach I love walking down side streets to look at architecture and gardening. You can tell the difference in a house lived in versus a rental property. It’s like someone is home.

I started another coastal painting…

Tide of Life

Bits, pieces, and whole

The tide brings in all of life

Each day with sunrise.

Art Prescription: No matter where we are in life, the sun rises. We must face the day with our good times and in times of loss.

Time heals our losses, and hope moves us forward.

Art Journal:

Hibiscus

Pure power from seed

This plant has a will, success

Her only mission.

Art Prescription: Again I turn to the power of nature. She has no sorrow, regrets, blames no one for her being, and just gets out there and works to bloom her very best. The sun looks down and says well done my little flower.

Sad news

I’m very sorry to hear the passing of Lizzie “Ministry of Animals.” If you ever enjoyed her lovely ink paintings and her words of wisdom I’m sure her husband would appreciate hearing that. If you have not, go to her blog and see how she loved the animal world around her. Peace, Bev

Home Sweet Home

Hi guys!!

I’m home from the beach and our house had spotty reception. Not a bad thing for vacation I suppose.

I did post daily on Instagram.

This morning I did a grandson and grandmother (social distancing) art class in my backyard. What fun!

Hope you all are staying healthy and creative as our changed world moves forward.

Cheers,

Bev

Taking the Bate

Spoken word dangles

A bit of fodder for mind

You don’t take the bate.

Art Prescription: have you ever been tested!? When you know someone is trying to get you to take the bate?

Do you realize when others cross boundaries due to their issues?

Relationships are challenging. I really just want to cruise down the middle lane….
