Watercolor discipline

A technique practice.

Art Prescription:  Bird feathers and eggs are a good way to explore the many ways to lay down watercolor on paper. Today in my studio we explored wet on wet, and blending watercolors.

Nature’s works of art

Design driven by instinct

Essential life.

Art Prescription:  As spring continues on her course, I’m completely in awe of how the natural world takes care of itself without missing a beat. I have two beautiful nests in my trees, one of Mourning Doves, and the other Robins. I so enjoy sneaking a peak at the females as they sit on their brood, as the males nervously bring food as an offering. Seems most bird species have the parenting thing down-pat. Each “person” knows their role and there is no arguing about who last took out the trash.
