Freshly fallen leaves

Quinacridone gold, ochre

And brilliant blues.

Art Prescription:  So many luscious colors in fall!

Seasons come and go

She forgets where her keys are

And paints a fall scene.

Art Prescription:  Life moves so fast, it all blends into one.

Fall collage, based on a real collage of elements last fall. Just felt like it.

With each new look up

I see more leaves losing green

Gaining fall color.

Art Prescription:  I love fall! Each season has beauty and gifts, and I will miss summer’s pollinators!

Index card fall

Sharp, bright, fall sunlight

Euphonious, crickets hum

Musical meadow.

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.

Fall Meadow

Hey y’all my Art Prescription Deck: A Dose of Coloring Inspiration is available in my Etsy shop!!

Delicate fall blooms

Bright, cheery on my back deck

Nuthatches are back!

Art Prescription:  Sam planted some fall blooming plants. One of them is a delicate, orchid looking bloom. I have no idea the name, but the color and delicate shape intrigues me. Nuthatches are supposedly in decline, so happy to see them return to my sunflower seed.

Time spent on horseback

A gentle sway, keeping time

With nature’s tonic.

Art Prescription:  There are two ways to keep time. One is by the clock, calendar, meetings, deadlines…and the other is by the soul where no clocks are allowed. Most of us live by the clock, chasing, running, getting it done! What if we lived by joy, quiet, time spent staring off into the woods (on a horse’s back). Of course you guys know I’m preaching to myself!!! I need to spend more time chasing spirit instead of the almighty clock.
