The Hand of an Artist September 17, 2015

Through hand to paper

The artist renders, and the

Soul makes her requests.

Dancer…done in collaboration with my husband…how appropriate!!


Quiet Walk September 12, 2015

The woods are quiet

My bike wheels spin on the trail

Flowers go to seed.

Art Prescription:  Sam and I went to Tobacco Trail today. We drove out across Jordan Lake to the portion of the trail that crosses the wetlands of the lake. We saw four different kinds of woodpeckers. They have a primo opportunity in that habitat with all the stags. I’m coloring my Art Prescription Deck to make thumbnails for final production. This is the fun part!

Each 5 x 7 card in the deck will be printed on Bristol Vellum – an artist grade paper! The botanical names will be listed and the family.

Blackberry Lily – Belamcancia chinensis – Iris Family

Persian Speedwell – Veronica persica – Figwort Family

Art Prescription:  This is one of the twelve designs for the Art Prescription Deck: A Dose of Coloring Inspiration!! Whoot. Coming soon to my Etsy shop. I went to the NC Botanical Garden with my pen and ink Sunday. Best inspiration ever to be right there with the source!

For you to color!

Art Prescription:  Today I did a set of three pen and ink wildflowers on index cards. I’d love to do an adult coloring book with wildflowers, feathers, and birds. https://www.etsy.com/listing/232055127/adult-coloring-wildflower-index-cards?ref=shop_home_active_1
