I used masking fluid. Hope once this is dry I can peel the mask off revealing white blossoms.
A road-side flicker
Falling leaf or butterfly
Depends on season.
Art Prescription: Our senses are hard-wired to see what we think we see.
So Zeta made her way across North Carolina. Our freshly raked yard is a mess of leaves and pine needles.
Too windy for a safe horse ride, so we did horse anatomy with oil pastels.
I absolutely love children’s artsy souls!
No reference, just a feeling.
This morning I headed out to the barn to sketch en plein Air!
I set up in the shade. Horses are difficult to draw. Lots of proportions and shading to get right.
When sketching, I’m mostly interested in capturing a gesture.

Do you realize when others cross boundaries due to their issues?
Relationships are challenging. I really just want to cruise down the middle lane….
Window to the soul
A place you gaze when in love

Art Prescription: I did this sketch one night in bed. Added colored pencil just now.
Index card with pen and ink and colored pencil:

Art Prescription: Playing around with all sorts of things!!

Art Prescription: I did this pen and ink sketch last night in a sleepy state. Today I went back in and added colored pencil. Some folks read to sleep…I draw!
8 1/2 x 11 pen and ink and colored pencil
Alone in the field
I feel small and listen for
Wisdom of horses.
Art Prescription: “Take it to the horses,” she said. Take it to the horses, and take a shower, and then think about life. Thank you Deborah!
I spent a couple of hours sketching en plein air today. Ink on index cards:
