Sharp, bright, fall sunlight
Euphonious, crickets hum
Art Prescription: The sun is sharp these days. Once up, she burns off frosted windshields…moves on to de-thaw grass. And still the crickets hum softly in the meadow.
Hey y’all my Art Prescription Deck: A Dose of Coloring Inspiration is available in my Etsy shop!!
Sneaky small pepper
Spiced up butternut squash soup
Burst of capsaicin.
Art Prescription: I got a load of peppers from a friend. Green peppers, jalepeno peppers, and some small slender peppers I thought to be mild. I proceeded to put four of those babies into my cream of butternut squash soup and whoa baby those peppa’s packed some heat. It was good though, not too hot for us to eat, but next time I may remove the seeds and just have the lovely flavor without the after-burn, lol.
Index card with colored pencil:
With the door open, pitter-
patter of rain, fresh.
Art Prescription: The breeze, the rain, and just me and the birds. I love painting in my studio on a rainy day. I keep the door wide open and listen to the soft fall of the rain. Soothing. Backyard birds visit for a sunflower or two.
8 x 8 watercolor “Little Bull”
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?
8 x 8 watercolor on watercolor paper:
Grasshoppers whirl by
Black crows chuckle in the trees
Horses swish their tails.
Art Prescription: Trying to take a day of rest…I went to swim and sauna. Rest? My restless soul is not familiar with this concept. So I ventured out to the farm to just be. And I did. I stood in the pasture watching horses graze and nudge each other gently. I saw crows and hawks fly by making lots of racket. I watched song-birds land on the fence to survey their next bug. I petted, leaned on, an loved on all the horses.

Through hand to paper
The artist renders, and the
Soul makes her requests.

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.
The woods are quiet
My bike wheels spin on the trail
Flowers go to seed.
Art Prescription: Sam and I went to Tobacco Trail today. We drove out across Jordan Lake to the portion of the trail that crosses the wetlands of the lake. We saw four different kinds of woodpeckers. They have a primo opportunity in that habitat with all the stags. I’m coloring my Art Prescription Deck to make thumbnails for final production. This is the fun part!
Each 5 x 7 card in the deck will be printed on Bristol Vellum – an artist grade paper! The botanical names will be listed and the family.
Blackberry Lily – Belamcancia chinensis – Iris Family
Persian Speedwell – Veronica persica – Figwort Family
