A simple bee sting

Has me with my leg up high

Watching the TV.

Art Prescription:  Not usually so tuned in to current news…I’m struggling with reality. We all want to feel a sense of pride for our country, right?

His soft muzzle, chews, juicy

Favorite apple.

Art Prescription:  I love sharing an apple with my horse Finn. I take a bite and then offer him a bite. After a ride and grooming this ritual is so nice. Good boy!!

Wide awake at four a. m.

Life is so fragile.

Lotus, sun symbol

Marks the beginning and end

Purification.

Dream of June garden

Lost in the scent of flowers

Where butterflies fly.

Art Prescription: Played with mixed media on a YES canvas today. Laid acrylic paint down with a brayer, then added some collage and other marks. Then wrote in French, “Look for me in the garden, where butterflies fly and I’m lost in the flowers.”
