Layers of feathers

A silent flight through the woods

The noble Barn Owl.

Art Prescription:  Did you know this beautiful creature is endangered?

Flock of wild turkeys

Gather in field, they do not

Wish they were peacocks.

Art Prescription:  So your neighbor has decked the halls and baked (home-made) a holiday cookie batch to sin for. Meanwhile you say the mantra “less is more, less is more.” And actually you are okay with that. You watch as the cardinal steals a sunflower seed from the nuthatch, and you sigh…life is good…life is really good.

These creatures who take to flight

Feathers, part of wings.

Art Prescription:  My favorite subject lately is feathers. So beautiful, so purposeful…

Busy to-do list

A chance to wear many hats

Hour by hour.

Art Prescription:  Off to a busy Monday. I’ve been out to the farm caring for my Finn 6 out of the last 7 days. He is doing very well. Days are long, life is short… We painted feathers in todays art studio workshop.

Such a winter day

Summer dreaming, hot color

Bird song in my head.

Art Prescription:  As I slip and slide out to my studio I dream of summer days…long, warm summer days.
