Haiku November 17, 2012 Evening in the Woods

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.

Haiku October 7, 2012 Jewels

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!!

Haiku August 21, 2012 August Change

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!)
