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.

Busy to-do list

A chance to wear many hats

Hour by hour.

Art Prescription:  Off to a busy Monday. I’ve been out to the farm caring for my Finn 6 out of the last 7 days. He is doing very well. Days are long, life is short… We painted feathers in todays art studio workshop.

Poetics August 9, 2014

To swim, poetic

Pause to take a deep breath, stroke

Rhythm, flow, water.

Art Prescription:  Was thinking today as I was swimming how poetry and swimming are similar. There is a cadence to my stroke, a rhythm as I kick my feet, a pause as I turn my head to breathe. For me this is a moving meditation. Colored pencil and pen and ink 3 x 5 index card.
