Trail Ride May 21, 2017

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.

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.

Hello November 18, 2014

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.

A Day Off September 11, 2014

Blue Skies September

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 a Ride June 21, 2014

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.

Horse Trail Ride April 23, 2014

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!

Choose Love April 9, 2014

Where the sky is wide

Freshly plowed fields, deep orange

That’s where horses run.

Art Prescription:  The beauty of the rolling country on my way to Blue Skies Farm http://www.blueskiesmapleview.us calms my nervous system. Hello friend…choose love.
