Guess everyone is in need of getting outside.
Our usual quiet trail that leads to the back waters of Jorden Lake was packed with bikers, joggers, and walkers.
Sam got a few nice photos of Red-headed Woodpeckers.
Not sure what these will be…Maybe secret art drops…
Steady, cold, wet, rain
Tree limbs bow low, water logged
Warm, dry, studio
Art Prescription: About froze at the barn this morning. Finn was soaked.
Home to dry clothes and worked on Ramses paintings for an order.
Big white clouds billow
Grey line of thunder showers
Cows low and huddle.

Across the field, leaves
Barely move on a very
Hot end of July.

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…

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.

Fall on black cows in pasture
Grain bin keeps the gate.
Art Prescription: As I do most Fridays after my two RN days, I headed out to see Finn at the farm. I can be completely exhausted, and my visit with the horses and fresh air renews my spirit. On the way home I take in the gently rolling pastures. Today a herd of black cows against the green pasture made me pull over. As I sat in a drive a white truck approached me. “You okay honey.” “Yes sir, I just pulled off to take a picture of your cows, may I.” “You sure can. Did ya see the babies? They are probably off down near the woods. They are purdy.” He backed up the drive. He had only come down to see if I needed help. Country. A far cry from the news of the day. Just people watching out for each other. I got my photo and headed home. Sigh…
