Old fashion lilac

Delicate pearly purple

Scents up whole garden.

Art Prescription:  Reminds me of my grandmother’s garden.

A light snow dusting

Frosted wildflowers, spring trees

With a white layer.

Art Prescription:  A morning snow put spring on hold, but by afternoon the birds were moving on to their business.

Two trees grew and grew

And started a forest where

Sweet animals live.

Art Prescription:  Nature is very busy this time of year multiplying.

Beauty comes in many ways

The turkey vulture.

Art Prescription:  As I drove about country roads this morning, I encountered several instances where turkey vultures were having their breakfast. Now I know this is when most go oooooooohhhhh! But perhaps we need to have more respect for these street cleaners. I didn’t paint one because I do not have a great photo reference, but next time you see some big wings circling high above give credit to the vultures of our world.

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.

Simple boundaries

Ancient way of the horse herd


Art Prescription:  Boundaries…we all have them. I’ve done a lot of work this past year on learning about boundaries, including a course with Pixie Lighthorse called Boundaries Bootcamp. Thank you Pixie. And thank you horses. As I watch your simple and most of the time gentle interactions you keep your boundaries and those of others clean and neat. Pixie would say, “keep your side of the street clean.” As I get busier with art and an exciting launch coming soon!, I find myself needing to set better boundaries, where I choose to spend my energy or not. This is good stuff folks! It means getting clearer and more balanced in your life and the ongoing daily exchange of energy. Aho!
