A new walking trail
Ruby-crowned kinglet and hawk
And a hermit thrush.
Art Prescription: we ventured out today on a new local trail. It’s a paved walking trail and it wanders into wooded wetlands.
Wish I had my binoculars!!!
Sweet woodland creatures
Sit hidden and watch us walk
Visitors we are.
Art Prescription: When I walk in the woods I’m always aware of being a visitor among the natural world, especially for the nocturnal creatures.
Watercolor pencil sketch:
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
Fall wildflowers bloom
Dot the meadows and woods for
Butterflies to feed.
Art Prescription: Hiked Mason Farm this past weekend. Beautiful wildflowers and lots of butterflies. Feeds my muse.
Here is a little drawing for you to color! You can print it off and color with your favorite art tools! Secret…I’m working on a new Art Prescription (™) adult coloring product…due out October!
