In the Studio

Steady, cold, wet, rain

Tree limbs bow low, water logged

Home to dry clothes and worked on Ramses paintings for an order.

Sketching

Rain pours down, sideways

Umbrella threatens to flip

I drove to three stores today to find hoops for my Stitch Kits. Ended up at JoAnn Fabric and waited in line outside with my mask and gloves. Only so many people in the store at one time.

Since I was there I picked up a couple of new fat quarters of fabric.

What Day Is It

Sun shines through window

Coffee is ready.

Early walk at Mason Farm. Saw a Fly Catcher.

Fairy purveyors

A skill to be developed

Art Prescription: If you aren’t keeping a fairy journal during these times, then you are missing out on magic.

Local fairies have provided journals for those on the look out for all good among all people.

Each piece of pine straw

Or lichen, twigs, spider’s silk

Laid with high design

Art Prescription: Bird’s nests are architecturally a wonder!

My walks sustain me.

And also my art. My Stitch Kits are designed to give peace.
