A July heat wave

No amount of sweet iced-tea

Cools rumpled feathers!

Art Prescription:  Does everyone’s feathers seem rumpled? Or is it just HAWT out there?

From red kayak bow

The lake stretches out deep blue

Big clouds float above.

Art Prescription:  Just me and my first mate went “boating” today…kayaking. It was so fun and beautiful and peaceful. Nothing but us, blue skies, and a lake that went on forever. Bliss!

Surest way to hear

The soft strains of harmony

Is in the silence.

Art Prescription:  My way to refuel from life’s demands is to go sit in a field with horses in pure silence. I listen to birds, cicadas, squirrels foraging, the horses snorting and chomping on grass. And in that big expanse, I realize how precious life is, how important it is to feed your soul. Everyone is different. For me quiet gifts fill me up, and I’m am so grateful for the simple.

Alone in the field

I feel small and listen for

Wisdom of horses.

Art Prescription:  “Take it to the horses,” she said. Take it to the horses, and take a shower, and then think about life. Thank you Deborah!

I spent a couple of hours sketching en plein air today. Ink on index cards:

A cloud over-head

Certain it’s going to rain

Perhaps it will pass.

Art Prescription:  Some people walk around their whole lives with a cloud over their head and wonder why it rains all the time. We are what we think, eat, live. Each day adds up and suddenly this is how we have lived our lives.

Perfect summer fruit

Just needs salt, pepper and bread!

Sandwich masterpiece.

Art Prescription:  Nothing compares to a good tomato sandwich!

Living is easy

Summertime and sweet nectar

Things with wings gather.
