Crowded Trails

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…

In the Studio

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.

What does your web catch?

Art Prescription:  So if your web catches ease with a focus on gratitude and all the good things in your life… what  do you weave? If your web catches stress and always looking for things to go wrong…what do you weave?

So like this spider who weaves her best web ever, can you expect good things to happen? Can you get away from the spider next door who says, “we won’t catch anything, it’s useless.”

Weave your web with joy and good things will come…

Shed November 1, 2015

As the trees shed leaves

So begins winter season

Birds sing renewal.

Art Prescription:  As we begin the season of Yin, going into the darker days, I have a sense of renewal. Cleaning the clutter from the year…preparing for the holidays and my open studio.

Fall Posy October 25, 2015

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…

Cowgirl Wisdom October 24, 2015

She moved me, the wind

And I listened deeply to

What she had to say.

Art Prescription:  I went to an animal communication workshop today at the farm where my horse Finn lives. It was intense and beautiful. I was overwhelmed with some emotions that came up, and I’m sure I will need to process my “conversations” more in the days to come. The horses were amazing and accepting and willing…wow!
