Soft and hard edges

Soft flower petals, hard wood

Like fire and ice.

Fresh open window

September butterflies flit

A leaf or two falls.

The closing walls and

The ticking clocks gonna come

Back and take you home.

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!!

Butterflies mosaic

Moonlight on the lake

The bog settles in for night

Soft, smooth, jazzy sound.

Art Prescription:  The natural world soothes…

ICAD 2016 July 14

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:

Index card spring 1

Sharp, bright, fall sunlight

Euphonious, crickets hum

Musical meadow.

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.
