So hot!!! Finn got a bath!
All along the ground
Wildflowers mingled with grass
Sway in the saddle.
Art Prescription: Took a long trail ride today! Perfect weather and the scent of honeysuckle filled the air. Along the ground I saw purple-spring vetch, clover, and purple nettle.
Wet in wet watercolor:
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.
My reflection in
Your deep soulful eyes, I am
A work in progress.
Art Prescription: Time with my horse today. I could disappear in his eyes…so deep and full of meaning.
Started this Cyclamen sketch. Stay tuned for color…
Getting to know you
I look into big brown eyes
Searching for a yes.
Art Prescription: Went out to play with Finn today. Each day we get to know each other a tiny bit more. This building of a relationship, of love and trust, is an amazing process. I’m so honored he is letting me know him!
Back to studio for a little painting. Watercolor and Sumi Ink.
Place where time stands still
Gentle wind rolls across field
Horses graze on grass.
Art Prescription: Took my sketchbook and big old sun hat out to Blue Skies today. Took a chair and sat in the paddock, being part of the herd. So hot. They were fine to just let me be there. We know you and you are okay to hang-out with us. They stood lazy, swishing their tails against the flies, sun on their strong backs.
After morning ride
She gets a spray, cool water
Returns to the hay.
Art Prescription: Rode Miss Lacey this morning. Went early to beat the heat. I love spraying her down with cool water, washing the saddle-marked sweat from her white body. She enjoys it too! I return her to the paddock where fresh hay awaits. A grazing horse…Zen.
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!
