A scampering cat
Thunder paws rattles the hall
With pure playful glee.
Art Prescription: My cats play chase…
Index card with pen and ink and colored pencil
The sacred rivers
Here are the sun and the moon
A blissful temple.
Art Prescription: So I find the sacred in nature, my animals, and the rhythm of life. What do you find sacred?
Art Journal: pen and ink and collage
Been hanging round this
Town for so, so long, walk paths
Just like yesterday.
Art Prescription: As I walked to the bus, lunch in hand, I cornered the UNC School of Nursing. Been hanging around this town for a long time. This, it occurs to me, is my life…
Pet sitting for my favorite neighbor cat…watercolor sketching her while visiting.
Beyond winter trees
Lies a view unseen until
Revealed by bareness.
Art Prescription: Winter beauty.

Farrier at farm
Horses stand still for this man

Warm, bright, space where I create
Welcome friends, neighbors!
Art Prescription: Today was a cold, wet, rainy day! And my friends and neighbors still came out to celebrate my open studio with me. Thanks y’all!! For those of you who live a little far off…
Eight o’clock, eighteen!
Blue birds line up on the fence
Ground frozen solid!
Art Prescription: Out to help feed horses. 18 degrees. Oh yea, I’ve got this. Warmed up quickly and enjoyed early morning scenes of blue birds. Art journal page…
Eat, sleep, play, gaze, nap often
Purrfect your meow.
Art Prescription: You do know that sleeping and napping are two different entities? Pen and ink sketch in journal.
Farm entrance, dogwood
Cockle-berry takes hitch-hike
Horses in the woods.
Art Prescription: Both of us in need of clearing our minds, my friend and I. I went and led Finn out of the woods, rode a bit. Then we both took in the calm that is the farm, to clear our heads and sketch!
Sunday, day of rest
A treat to get quiet, nap
Art Prescription: I’m not much of a napper, can never fall asleep during the day. I do relish laying down though and resting my body. With three cats, someone is always going to join me. Mocha, my tabby, will make biscuits for 30 minutes straight. Got a session of cat acupuncture and then up I went to the studio to play. 8 1/2 x 11 mixed media
