Old fashion lilac

Delicate pearly purple

Scents up whole garden.

Art Prescription:  Reminds me of my grandmother’s garden.

Index card with watercolor and my chop that says “hope”



Cold, chill to the bone

Steady drizzle and down-pours

Early springs revenge.

Art Prescription:  So we have had record high temperatures, and now we are having record low temperatures.

Index card lighthouseDoers and dreamers

Plan for a trip by the sea

Destination, peace.

Art Prescription:  A quick little sketch on an index card.


Full…a red ball jar

Perfect white hydrangeas

Simple, elegant.

Art Prescription: A watercolor sketch on watercolor paper…

White hydrangeas

Glad is in the heart

On their sturdy dark-green stalks

Gladiolas beam.

Art Prescription:  Visited a dear friend to talk about life as we know it. Beside her porch is a lush garden of tall gladiolas. Glad to have good friends!!

Index card with watercolor:

ICAD June 15

Winter can feel like

Time underwater, spring is

Coming up for air.

Art Prescription:  Hard to go inside these days…I’ve got a pair of blue birds checking out the bird house right outside my studio window. How delightful if they take up residence and I can watch them raise a brood!

Watercolor on Yupo (first time on Yupo and I’m not sure what I’m doing)

Roses on Yupo 72

Cold front moving in

Wind whips tree branches, rattles

Blue birds hunker down.

Art Prescription:  What a fuss? Blue birds claiming territory so early? Perhaps a warm box seems like a good idea!
