Watching mourning doves

She sits and wiggles to get

Her nest just perfect.

Art Prescription:  Watching birds build nests in my own backyard. Finished my marigold from yesterday. Added colored pencil and graphite.


Old fashion lilac

Delicate pearly purple

Scents up whole garden.

Art Prescription:  Reminds me of my grandmother’s garden.

My shovel hits a hard spot

New Mandevilla.

Art Prescription:  Here is the finished piece. I decided to leave the painting loose and pen and ink some detail.

Planted this in my garden!

Just sit and listen

And you will hear the world move

Forward with spirit.

Crushed seeds are love charm

When rubbed on the hands of men

This nodding flower.

Art Prescription:  So my garden is full of these beauties. Shall I try a spell?

Familiar blooms

Return each year along path

Rhythm of nature.

Art Prescription:  I’m a creature of habit. I like familiar. I like home. I like to see nature’s bounty each year in all my familiar places.
