Leaves dance down the street

Pumpkins are lit in gloaming

And first frost moves in.

Art Prescription: Halloween always seems to mark the change from fall to winter. Temperatures fall and our first frost is in the forecast.

Diva was not too excited about her costume!


So Zeta made her way across North Carolina. Our freshly raked yard is a mess of leaves and pine needles.

Too windy for a safe horse ride, so we did horse anatomy with oil pastels.

I absolutely love children’s artsy souls!

And my sketches.


Just then she was there

Perched in a dogwood, hunting

Swooped up in a pine.

Art Prescription: I love when I feel visited by Mother Nature. Today on my walk I spent some time visiting with a hawk.

I think a Red-shouldered Hawk.

Day Hike

A drive, rural roads

Barns and pastures, fall color

Woodland hike to damn.

Art Prescription: We set out this morning on a day hike. Just a 50 minute drive outside of Chapel Hill and you land in Alamance County, Saxipahaw, and great hiking!

Yes, we did pass the brewery going and coming home. Next time maybe we will have a cold brew!

This park appeals to a lot of people: hikers, disc golf enthusiast, historians, and equestrians.

We stopped to rest at the damn. Diva got to stretch and I got to sketch.

50th Anniversary

Our very good friends and neighbors are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary tomorrow. Wow!

What a life and legacy they have created.

I did a couple of collage pages to go in a scrap book their daughter has designed for them.
