Could be anywhere

Bright lights, crowds, music, and yet

Right now I’m so here!

Art Prescription:  Know what you need. Now…honor that. Simple.

Big white clouds billow

Grey line of thunder showers

Cows low and huddle.

Afternoon shadows

Fall on black cows in pasture

Grain bin keeps the gate.

Art Prescription: As I do most Fridays after my two RN days, I headed out to see Finn at the farm. I can be completely exhausted, and my visit with the horses and fresh air renews my spirit. On the way home I take in the gently rolling pastures. Today a herd of black cows against the green pasture made me pull over. As I sat in a drive a white truck approached me. “You okay honey.” “Yes sir, I just pulled off to take a picture of your cows, may I.” “You sure can. Did ya see the babies? They are probably off down near the woods. They are purdy.” He backed up the drive. He had only come down to see if I needed help. Country. A far cry from the news of the day. Just people watching out for each other. I got my photo and headed home. Sigh…

Black Cows

Perfectly quiet

With the door open, pitter-

patter of rain, fresh.

Art Prescription:  The breeze, the rain, and just me and the birds. I love painting in my studio on a rainy day. I keep the door wide open and listen to the soft fall of the rain. Soothing. Backyard birds visit for a sunflower or two.

Little Bull 72

The queen of the farm

Watches over her herd and

The makings of milk.

Art Prescription:  I drive past Mapleview Dairy on my way to see Finn. I love seeing the cows grazing in the pasture.

Cookie on the farm

She provides the dipping milk

Chocolate and cream.

Art Prescription:  Fearrington Village, not far from Chapel Hill, has a herd of these Belted Galloway cows. They also have goats with the same coloring.

The big horizon

A herd of cows are lowing

Fuzzy soft noses.

Art Prescription:  Ever look into the big soft round eyes of a cow?
