Tiny elephant

Trying to claim your own space

Allow me to be.

Art Prescription:  Have you heard of the white elephant in the room? Well what if we all respected each other’s space a bit more?

Elephant

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.

Alcohol ink:

Birds of a feather

Flock together, so they say

Know where you belong.

Art Prescription:  Remember the clicks in high-school where you were struggling to fit in? As adults, I think we struggle with this issue. Life is like a river, constantly moving and changing, going with the flow. Birds seem better than us at knowing who they want to fly with. For them it’s simple. It’s mutual support.

Pink zinnias and

Lisianthus grow and bloom

In the fall garden.

Art Prescription:  I’m so excited to launch the Art Prescription Deck: A Dose of Coloring Inspiration!! Here is a sneak peek at the first card from the “Wildflower Dreams Collection.”

5 x 7 pen and ink for you to color!

Art Prescription Deck 1

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

Sea Turtle 1

A world of beauty

Yet each sunflower is fine

And perfectly blooms.

Art Prescription:  Why do we humans have such a hard time blooming…recognizing our beautiful parts and strengths and individual differences? Can we take a lesson from the garden where each bloom just reaches for the sun? Cause it’s a short journey this one livid life. So my friends go out there and bloom!!

Alcohol ink and pen:

Sunflowers inks

Intricate pattern

These creatures who take to flight

Feathers, part of wings.

Art Prescription:  My favorite subject lately is feathers. So beautiful, so purposeful…
