Big bucks September

Heads adorned with a sculptor

Stand tall in the woods.

Art Prescription:  I continue to try and paint bucks. My challenge…to capture their essence, and stay loose and gestural. This is on big 22.5 x 30 paper, so I used very wet watercolor and big brushes. I even did the faint background with a house-paint brush. It’s fun painting BIG!!

And a nice break from launching The Art Prescription Deck: A Dose of Coloring Inspiration – I’m picking up samples Monday, whoot!!

Gentleness September 16, 2015

Deer, gentle you are

Full of love and pure kindness

Touch wounded beings.

Art Prescription:  Deer medicine has come into my art again. Here is an excerpt from “Medicine Cards: The Discovery of Power Through the Ways of Animals,” by Jamie Sams And David Carson.

“If Deer has gently nudged its way into your cards today, you are being asked to find the gentleness of spirit that heals all wounds. Stop pushing so hard to get others to change, and love them as they are. Apply gentleness to your present situation and become like the summer breeze: warm and caring. This is your tool for solving the present dilemma are you facing. If you use it, you will connect with Sacred Mountain, your centering place of serenity, and Great Spirit will guide you.”

“In its true application, unconditional love means that no strings are attached.”
