Rain-forest sunrise

Water rolls off of wet leaves

Heat rises with steam.

Art Prescription:  Amazing where you can travel with art!!

Nature sings with pride

The mockingbird swoops the cat

To protect her nest.

Art Prescription:  Survival. All we need is love…

Good for memory

A cascade of shades of green

Gingko tree in spring.

As the white moon grows

Blooming vines twirl and reach up

Purple-blue Vinca.

Art Prescription:  Such a happy perineal.

A blue bird of hope

Lives within the open heart

Ready to take flight.

Art Prescription:  My chop says, “hope,” or “rare expectation” in Chinese.

Taupe colored clouds move

In with a cold winter front

Hang tight little blooms.

Art Prescription:  All this warm weather here in North Carolina has encouraged everything to bloom early. Now tonight a front is moving back in.

I love the simple elegance of brush painting. I’ll make this one available in my Etsy shop!!

Watercolor with my chop that says “hope”

February shrub 72.jpg

In Lady Banks Rose

A pair of wrens seek courtship

Among early buds.

Art Prescription:  If they choose to nest here, soon their home will be snuggled among abundant yellow Lady Banks Roses.
