Transformation August 2, 2016

And then it all comes

Together, the path, vision

Flight, freedom, take place.

Art Prescription:  From the mosaic I did for yesterday’s post I then negative painted and butterflies took flight out of chaos. What fun to start with a random design and find magic on the page!!

Butterfly Delight May 24, 2016

In the cool spring mud

A Mourning Cloak Butterfly

Feeds on minerals.

Art Prescription:  For those of you who follow my blog you will remember the gem I found while walking at Mason Farm. It’s a Mourning Cloak Butterfly. They use their probiscus to feed on the minerals found in mud. This is why you often see a bunch of butterflies on a puddle.

Trail Gem May 21, 2016

A gem on the path

While a woodpecker keeps time

Fledgelings flap for food.

Art Prescription:  A weekend walk at our favorite place Mason Farm. The greenery is lush and birds have fledged their nests. Parents are busy feeding jittery young, so devoted. Loud as a drum, a woodpecker beats at a hollow tree. Butterflies flit and flitter among wildflowers.
