Birds sing in the rain

They sing in the sun, they sing

Because they have song!!

Art Prescription:  I love Maya Angelou and have used her beautiful quote in today’s Art Prescription.

On the other side

Of the pasture, the sun sets

Cool mist over ground.

Art Prescription:  I went out to the farm to meet the farrier so Finn could get his “pedicure.” After two busy RN days, a chance to slow down and enjoy the horses was a welcome situation.  I stayed until the sun began to sink on the horizon. Gazing out on a field of happily grazing horses is peace for my soul, beauty for my eyes, quiet for my ears, and love for my heart.

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.

Pink zinnias and

Lisianthus grow and bloom

Sweet gums are the first

Splashes of yellow appear

Leaves begin to change.

Art Prescription: Driving home from the farm today I began to notice a few patches of yellow here and there. In our yard it is the sweet gum trees that are the first to start changing color and dropping their leaves. The cooler mornings are a sure sign that fall is here.

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
