Sweet perfume in the garden
Petals velvet soft
Art Prescription: The scent of gardenias is unmatched. Their sweet perfume will follow you around the garden.
I did a simple pen and ink sketch on blue card stock…. just the basics, soothing.
Still wet from the rain
Cut delicate pink roses
Adorn a glass vase.
Art Prescription: Oh how I will miss being able to go out into the garden for freshly cut flowers.
Watercolor on 5 x 7 bristol
Cosmos wind upwards, gold flags
Cone flowers stand guard.
Art Prescription: Rode Lacey today!! Meadow ride across freshly cut pastures, bucolic. Then home to sketch in my own garden. Grateful for this day.
Intricate patterns emerge
Rings of rays blossom,
Art Prescription: Did you know the “petals” of the sunflower are not true petals? The true flowers are the tiny rays that form the amazing spiral design on the head of a sunflower and many other “ray” flowers. Here’s another watercolor pencil sketch, finished with a quick big brush of water.
Backyard pen and ink
Hummingbirds fly by as I
Capture a moment.
Art Prescription: I love sketching in my garden!! Simply, sit, watch, sketch with pen and ink. Sometimes when you just sit still nature will come to you. I always wish, oh! need my camera…and then remind myself to just be in the moment.
Faint from spring beauty
I grasp to take it all in
This one human life.
Art Prescription: Sometimes nature’s beauty overwhelms me. We hiked our favorite place Mason Farm Biological Preserve, and I went to the North Carolina Botanical Gardens to sketch!!
