Hello friends and fellow bloggers,
I have a special treat for you today! I’ve been working with a group of young environmentalists to bring to life a body of kid’s art. Last summer these NC Kids painted their favorite NC threatened bird with my coaching.
Announcing The Threatened Bird Project Note Cards!! My company has produced this charming set of 12 note cards, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to our local Audubon chapter. http://www.newhopeaudubon.org
Please visit my Etsy shop to make your purchase to support the birds!

At the sideline, I
Watch her canter through the field
I’m jealous and proud.
Art Prescription: This beautiful young lady rides my horse Finn on Tuesdays. She loves him. Today I watched her ride and felt both a sense of true pride to see my beautiful horse move, and I have to admit, jealousy. It’s okay though, it’s a win-win, and is super good for him. He OF COURSE! knows I’m his momma and loves me MORE. LOL, Sweet boy…
Hello, how are you?
Is your heart troubled, worried?
Get outside and smile.
Art Prescription: End of winter, we all need a little vitamin D…or a little animal medicine.
Could be anywhere
Bright lights, crowds, music, and yet
Right now I’m so here!
Art Prescription: Know what you need. Now…honor that. Simple.

The warm early setting sun
As the chill sinks in.
Watercolor and colored pencil:
Clear skies, hawks, blue birds
Early morning crisp, cold, air
I feed the horses.
Art Prescription: After a busy Open Studio, it was so peaceful to go out on a cold winter morning and be with the horses.
Little biddy bit
A new experience, farm
And great big horses!
Art Prescription: My friend Bonnie and her two sweet pups went to the farm today to meet the herd. It was so interesting to watch these tiny dogs with the horses. The one word that says it all is “gentle.” Both the dogs and the horses were calmly inquisitive, sniffing the other as if to say hello.
First truly cool day
The pool chairs all stacked up now
October takes hold.
Art Prescription: Perfect for horseback riding!!
Morning walk, collection, gifts
From nature’s bearings.
Art Prescription: Who doesn’t love a collection? Eyes to the ground on my morning walk, I found much to collect and arrange.
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.
