Bird Sketching

Was a beautiful day here in North Carolina to go bird watching and sketching. After the Arctic blast of frigid temperatures, 50 degrees was just right.

I simply roamed my neighborhood with my binoculars and sketched what I saw.

So relaxing to ground myself in nature.

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season!



Home to add watercolor.


Watched with a hawk’s eye

Critical observation

No love accomplished!

If you have ever felt judge and watched and criticized, you know that you were bound to fumble.

On the other hand if you have been lifted with confidence and praised, you are bound to soar above your challenge.

Never allow people to disbelieve in you.

Only Believe in yourself!! You are great! Keep at it!!

I lost my car keys

And in looking for them I

Found a butterfly.

Female Black Swallowtail

This butterfly hibernated in my garage since last summer. Two more cocoons to go.

Horse Bliss

Pasture of horses

Bright sun, crisp shade, November

We enter their herd.

Art Prescription: Meditation with a herd today at Folly Farm.

Being with horses increases oxytocin, a good brain chemical.
