Hummingbirds fuel up
For their long fall migration
Lots of fall flowers.
Art Prescription: I’m still seeing hummingbirds coming to fall blooms. They won’t be around for long as they prepare for migration.
She knows her domain
Is at one with elements
Shows you who she is.
Art Prescription: A friend of mine recently reminded me, “If people show you who they are, believe them.” Once again I’m drawn to the deeper consciousness that is our animal world. Always asking what can we learn?
This is my second sea turtle. The first one I did with alcohol inks which was fun and bright and bold. This one is softer, done with watercolor. 8 1/2 x 11 watercolor
Outside my window
Hummingbirds play, drink nectar
From lush, sweet, flowers.
Art Prescription: Where did July go?
She took the curves slow
Remembering those long days
On route sixty-six.

Sky returns to blue
Group of Scarlet Tanagers
Striking red, black wings.
Art Prescription: Spent my morning at the farm. On and off rain. Late day walk at Mason Farm and lots of birds. Scarlet Tanagers glow in the green canopy.
Index card with colored pencil
Swarm of honey bees
The weight on a new spring branch
Queen rules colony.
Art Prescription: Saw this on my walk today. So amazing and beautiful. Swarming behavior only occurs in spring when the Queen Bee decides to start a new colony and leaves with thousands of worker bees in search of a new nest. Meanwhile they swarm in unexpected places.
Bye brown, step aside
Green, it’s your turn to shine bright
Cover the meadows.
Art Prescription: Spring abundance makes the dull browns of winter worth it.
Index card with colored pencil:
These creatures who take to flight
Feathers, part of wings.
Art Prescription: My favorite subject lately is feathers. So beautiful, so purposeful…

Birds sing at daybreak
The dark recedes, a new day
Long weekend mornings.
Art Prescription: Waking to my own rhythm is bliss.
Watercolor and pen and ink
Country roads a-glow
Redbuds and purple nettle
Make springs announcement.
Art Prescription: I love meandering on country roads…
