Fresh open window

September butterflies flit

A leaf or two falls.

Cuddle, laugh, repeat

Go on long hikes in the woods

Make morning coffee.

Art Prescription:  Love is simple…love is kind…

All day the birds sang

Sending spring a morse code sign

A secret message.

Art Prescription:  The sun did peek out today.

In every room

I have strewn my clutter, dreams

Creativity.

Art Prescription:  My husband is very patient with my creative adventures. I have a lovely studio behind our house, and I still manage to clutter, strew, and create in most every room in our house. My art, scraps, journals, books, fabric, the list goes on…can be found everywhere. I’m a neat person…or at least I used to be, before the muse took over my world. And it’s absolutely grand. Thanks honey!

Here is my sewing crew. We are putting together Art Prescription Kits!

Hey, wake up it’s spring

Fast, furious thunder-storms

Birds bathe in run-off.

Art Prescription:  Caught in a down-pour today, home wet. And thankful for natures reassuring rhythms.

As the trees shed leaves

So begins winter season

Birds sing renewal.

Art Prescription:  As we begin the season of Yin, going into the darker days, I have a sense of renewal. Cleaning the clutter from the year…preparing for the holidays and my open studio.

Sitting in judgment

The five ladies brood and mope

The Peacock shows out.

Art Prescription: Funny what comes to mind while painting. And I’ll show you some proud peacock later…
