My mission since starting this blog has always been to deliver a dose of art and haiku.
I feel art and creativity will get lots of families through these trying times.
Today I made three new mini-art journals and listed them in my Etsy shop.
I hope they might be a place to record thoughts and feelings about our times.
Dogwood State Flower
Sparkles with white blooms in woods
Nature moves onward.
Art Prescription: so no matter how scary the news gets… a walk in the woods reassures you that life is moving forward.
I’m not downplaying our current threats.
I am seeking peace in the natural world.
Dogwood pen and ink and watercolor pencil:
She came off trailer
To find herself in grass field
And she was happy.
Art Prescription: Horses live in the moment. Katie the Palomino arrived at Blue Skies today. After a couple of hour ride, she hopped off the trailer and settled quickly.
Beautiful day watching nature’s Devine system.
Of course my horse Finn and his buddy Bodee were very interested in the new mare!
I really want to bring you something positive in your feed. I know we are all feeling a similar anxiety.
I do find, as always, solace in my studio!
Played with palette knife painting today:
Empty parking lots
Families pull together
It’s a new normal.
Mixed media on an index card:
Wing and a prayer
Hope is the thing with feathers
Fly high dear sweet souls
Art Prescription: spent a good couple of hours with my sketchbook and binoculars.
Seems this comforts me and each petal is laid with intention.
