Fashion and beauty

Your external expression

Does not define you.

Art Prescription:  Long, lived day. Woke early, coffee (Facebook, yep), walk, swim, read, and then went to Scrap Exchange. This place is plundering heaven…junk galore…paper extravagansa.

Great finds for art journaling! I bought a $3.00 bag of mixed papers and found lots of vintage patterns.

After morning ride

She gets a spray, cool water

Returns to the hay.

Art Prescription:  Rode Miss Lacey this morning. Went early to beat the heat. I love spraying her down with cool water, washing the saddle-marked sweat from her white body. She enjoys it too! I return her to the paddock where fresh hay awaits. A grazing horse…Zen.

A few days ago

And you came home with flowers

The words to tell you.

Art Prescription:  Some days surprise you to no end….and you don’t forget them.


Two worlds, artist, nurse

Some days my hat does not fit

Either, want to rest!

Art Prescription:  I’ve been weaving my two worlds of nursing and art together for about 10 years…maybe 11…or all my life…which came first? I love both in many ways. Often it’s the transition that is hardest. What hats do you wear? Which hat fits you best? Fits your spirit?



Laundry flaps in wind

Mares graze, tall grass, buttercups

Afternoon at farm.

Art Prescription:  I sit and watch…observe their ears, their eyes, their tales as they swish at flies. They know I’m there. One of the most joyful things about sketching is simply the art of observation. I notice the sights, sounds, and smells of my surroundings. I get still and take it all in.Blue Skies May 20

Cutest little cap

A seed that holds a whole oak

The modest acorn.

Art Prescription:  Big things come in little packages, like hope, joy, and giving thanks!!
