Geese October 16, 2016

In the gloaming now

The geese line up to take flight

And with one sound, whoosh!

Art Prescription:  I love watching animals communicating. They seem to do such a better job than us humans. In unison bird flocks, horse herds, and geese make a move at the same time, as if choreographed.

Endings October 13, 2016

Heard the news today

People and things come and go

The circle of life.

Art Prescription:  One of my favorite horses is leaving the farm. I will miss this gentle giant, and grieve. Gives a slight meaning to “birds of a feather.”

Nature specimens

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.

August Leaves August 11, 2016

Through the August leaves

Families of birds fly on

Successful season.

Art Prescription:  Parents and their offspring are frequenting my feeder. Fledglings sit twittering, waiting for the parent to feed them. Parents shuffle in the seed, trying to teach their young to eat on their own. Successful parenting is huge.

Now July 27, 2016

In this moment, now

I feel peace, content, and safe

A mantra for all.

Nature’s Gifts May 17, 2016

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.
