Owl calls out from woods
Eyes acclimate as light fades
Birds announce days end.
Art Prescription: Sam and I went for a late afternoon, almost evening, walk at Mason Farm. Lots of activity as the temperature drops and the sun sets with a dramatic pink sky!! As squirrels scurry to their nests, birds take last call, and the nocturnal world begins to wake.
Last weekend light fades
Squirrels scamper to their nests
Jewels fall from trees!
Art Prescription: Long lived weekend! Yard work, pumpkins, cupcakes!! Lots of being outside! Try watercolor sketching a leaf or two! This one will go out as a Haiku O Gram tomorrow!!
Light fades, days shorten
Summer vacation over
August, back to school.
Art Prescription: Sam and I have not had a proper summer vacation, but I know from following my friends on Facebook that travels are coming to a close and it’s back to school time. Remember how long summers were as a kid? It was truly a season all to itself. Despite technology I think the thrill of a new notebook, colored pencils, pens, and arranging your desk is still something to look forward to…then homework starts. The lure of something new, a new school year, a new Autumn, new projects! Let’s go to the art store!! (went to Jerry’s Artarama in Raleigh today!)
