Gardening gadget

An old pair of shears to cut

A vase of posies.

Art Prescription:  Just simply graphite…so soothing.

I found a rainbow

When I looked into the eyes

Sweet mare, Frosty Girl.

Art Prescription:  Joy is what you find at the end of a rainbow!

Love is like starburst

An explosion of bright light

Into devotion.

Watermelon juice

Runs sticky down my arms, drips

Black seeds hit the ground.

Art Prescription:  On a hot day nothing say’s summer like a slice of watermelon. And if you are from the south…the spitting contest is ON!

Reincarnation

A chance to do it over

Same lessons next time.

Art Prescription:  Seems the lessons we need to learn follow us throughout life. Ain’t it grande!! Everyday an adventure!

A re-do piece of art, even cut up to find a small portion I liked! HA!

In field of plenty

Grateful for the chance to bloom

Flowers beam with pride.

Art Prescription:  As always when I have a chance to share watercolor, personalities blossom. It’s a bit of a hard task I ask…to let go…let the paint do the work…stay in the now. I so enjoy where each individual takes this.

Here is my first wash:

The river rushed by

Gurgling with white water

Around the dark rocks.

Art Prescription:  Today we took a drive to a small town near home called Bynum. It’s a historic mill town beside the Haw River. We walked along the old Bynum Bridge which is now just for walking and admired some songbirds. Then we hiked along the river listening to the water.
