Steam rises from cup
My morning is slow, leisure
French toast with my mate.
Art Prescription: Isn’t it lovely to have a slow morning? No rushing or appointments, running out the door with yogurt in hand. Time to sit with a cat or two in my lap, and watch the birds.
Little bit nippy, but I did head out to my studio to paint…
Acrylic over collage 6 x 6
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!
As the trees shed leaves
So begins winter season
Birds sing renewal.
Art Prescription: As we begin the season of Yin, going into the darker days, I have a sense of renewal. Cleaning the clutter from the year…preparing for the holidays and my open studio.
Index card with Sumi-ink:
Sitting in judgment
The five ladies brood and mope
The Peacock shows out.
Art Prescription: Funny what comes to mind while painting. And I’ll show you some proud peacock later…
8 1/2 x 11 watercolor
Freshly cut flowers
Seems trees have changed overnight
Mason Jar posy.
Art Prescription: We are so lucky here in North Carolina that flowers continue to bloom on through October. We haven’t had that first cold frost yet. So I happily plucked a Mason Jar full of flowers and set about to watercolor them. Makes me about as happy as anything…

She moved me, the wind
And I listened deeply to
What she had to say.
Art Prescription: I went to an animal communication workshop today at the farm where my horse Finn lives. It was intense and beautiful. I was overwhelmed with some emotions that came up, and I’m sure I will need to process my “conversations” more in the days to come. The horses were amazing and accepting and willing…wow!
Sharp, bright, fall sunlight
Euphonious, crickets hum
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.
