We have the right now
And we have past memories
Construct, who we are.
Art Prescription: I do seek to live in the present. I seek gratitude for each day.
At night my dreams dig up the past and make me aware that life has many layers.
Soft and hard edges
Soft flower petals, hard wood
Like fire and ice.
Art Prescription: collage with staples, pen and ink drawing, and colored pencil:
Fresh open window
September butterflies flit
A leaf or two falls.
Art Prescription: Mixed-media:
The closing walls and
The ticking clocks gonna come
Back and take you home.
Index card with collage and watercolor:
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!!
8 1/2 x 11 mixed media with collage and negative painting
Moonlight on the lake
The bog settles in for night
Soft, smooth, jazzy sound.
Art Prescription: The natural world soothes…
Index card with collage and pen:
Hey, wake up it’s spring
Fast, furious thunder-storms
Birds bathe in run-off.
Art Prescription: Caught in a down-pour today, home wet. And thankful for natures reassuring rhythms.
Index card with collage and colored pencil:
Sharp, bright, fall sunlight
Euphonious, crickets hum
Art Prescription: The sun is sharp these days. Once up, she burns off frosted windshields…moves on to de-thaw grass. And still the crickets hum softly in the meadow.
Hey y’all my Art Prescription Deck: A Dose of Coloring Inspiration is available in my Etsy shop!!
October comes in
With big buckets full of rain
Studio warm, dry.
Art Prescription: I love the sound of rain on my studio roof. So soothing as I lay down watercolor washes. Big clouds hover over North Carolina, but looks the hurricane is going out to sea. Fall is upon us…nice cool weather.
Index card with pen and ink and colored pencil:
Birds sing in the rain
They sing in the sun, they sing
Because they have song!!
Art Prescription: I love Maya Angelou and have used her beautiful quote in today’s Art Prescription.
