I found a rainbow

When I looked into the eyes

Sweet mare, Frosty Girl.

Art Prescription:  Joy is what you find at the end of a rainbow!

Sketching in the bed

My pen trails off into sleep

Next day, add color.

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!

Horse colored pencil

Just off the trailer

He takes a breath, and decides

The grass is green here.

Art Prescription:  A new horse arrived at the farm today…Space…a registered Paint. Cool as a cucumber, he gets off the trailer and proceeds to enter his new home with enthusiasm. Just amazing these creatures who live totally in the moment.

Different seating

You on a plane, me saddle

My ride takes me home.

Art Prescription:  There’s no place like home. What a beautiful day to take my boy Finn out on the trail. He takes such good care of me…sound, soft, reliable.

Reinventing self

A life long evolution

Become authentic.

Art Prescription:  There are times when you realize you are doing exactly what the universe intended all along…and that my dears is authenticity. Colored pencil and pen and ink on an envelope.

Quiet on the farm
Horses graze, content, focus
Ears perks, my presence.

Art Prescription: I love walking out into a herd of horses. I watch them notice me with curiosity. Their ears perk as their awareness shifts. Herd behavior has deep roots for these prey animals. To have them accept me and allow me to enter their space is an honor.

Through long green grass fields

Into the woods, by cows, geese,

Trail ride perfection!

Art Prescription:  Spring experienced on the back of a horse is bliss. Look down and see wildflowers at their feet. Watch their ears and eyes as they take it all in. You are on their back and they carry you with each step, mutual trust!
