Farm Sketching May 20, 2014

Laundry flaps in wind

Mares graze, tall grass, buttercups

Afternoon at farm.

Art Prescription:  I sit and watch…observe their ears, their eyes, their tales as they swish at flies. They know I’m there. One of the most joyful things about sketching is simply the art of observation. I notice the sights, sounds, and smells of my surroundings. I get still and take it all in.Blue Skies May 20

City or Country November 26, 2013

City or country?

Bright lights or quiet meadows?

Crowds or solitude?

Art Prescription:  As the holidays approach many people will be leaving home and traveling. For most there are elements of excitement combined with busy days and family dynamics. Take a few minutes each day to get quiet, put your legs up a wall, or shop till you drop if that’s what you like!! Either way, enjoy!

Galloping Horses September 25, 2013

A herd of horses

Come thundering across field

Majestic beauties!

Art Prescription:  Watching Deborah Pearson-Moyers (http://www.blueskiesmapleview.us/aboutus.htm) call her herd of horses and see them galloping across the field for breakfast is simply a moment of pure magic! They were not visible out in the pasture, but her voice had them come over the ridge of the field in one big thundering group. She said, “Listen to that!” Yep she loves it! Me too!
