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!
Also visit my NC Threatened Bird Project page right here on the Art Prescription!
In the sky and sea
Stars illuminate our walks
The rhythm of waves.
Art Prescription: Icons of bright-light and hope…stars.
Dried flowers on stem
Hint, original color
Calm winter neutrals.
Art Prescription: It was 22 degrees when I got to the farm this morning. Finn was happily eating hay, which is how horses keep warm in low temperatures. I had lots of layers and was comfortable, enjoying the bright winter sun. Later at home, I went for my usual walk and picked up a few beautiful things.
Soft and hard edges
Soft flower petals, hard wood
Like fire and ice.
Art Prescription: collage with staples, pen and ink drawing, and colored pencil:
Vet day at the farm
Wait like air traffic control
Snow began to fall.
Art Prescription: 13 Horses see the vet. Cold and snowing…
Art journal with watercolor:
Big December moon
Backdrop for tree silhouettes
On clear winter night.
Art Prescription: Can you believe it’s December?!?!
Perches to look down
Sees her world from a new branch
Art Prescription: Never hurts to look at things from a new perspective.
Stand of winter trees
Survey the fields, barren now
New life lurks below.
Art Prescription: As fall turns to winter, I love the sculptural quality of winter trees.
Salmon sky settles
Over day of gratitude
Blessed is my life.
Art Prescription: Every day should be Thanksgiving. We have much to be grateful for. So much we at times forget to give thanks.
The leaves are still so pretty as the sun begins to hang her head low…
