Collecting Memories

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.

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!!

Spring! May 6, 2016

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.

Euphonious October 20, 2015

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.

October Rain October 2, 2015

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.
