Will and Spirit

The will to live on

The spirit that guides our days

Really, that’s enough.

Art Prescription: I’m just finishing the final coat on this Remembering Tree for the North Carolina Burn Center.

This patient touched the hearts of many who cared for him.

Shift Work

Stethoscope, pitch-fork

Sterile, to horsey mud, hay

Two shifts in one day!

Art Prescription: Awake before the sun, I started my day at my nursing job.

Home to rest a minute I headed out to the farm to assist with horse lessons.

What a full day! So dark now for after-school lessons. Finn was a super good boy! Proud mama.


Cold wind spreads fall leaves

Some airborne twirl in the sky

And land on wet earth

Art Prescription: My studio is particularly cozy this time of year. Bright lights, heat, and joyful clutter.

I’m playing with some mini-collages on canvas with drawn or painted eggs and feathers.

Sam and I are headed to The Old Cotton Gin for an art show next weekend!
