Mulleygrubs January 30, 2017

Case of mulleygrubs

Cure is a cake or red dress

Or watercolor.

Art Prescription:  I first heard of “mulleygrubs” from Ginger Andrews’ poem “The Cure.”

“The cure for the mulleygrubs,

she tells my sister,

is to get up and bake a cake.

If that doesn’t do it, put on a red dress.”

It seems listening to the news is causing me a sure case of mulleygrubs, so I paint and paint and paint!! And maybe pray…

Flow April 22, 2016

Just trying too hard

Uses so much energy

Life is about flow.

Art Prescription:  Seems this lesson has presented itself multiple times for me this week.

This Town February 20, 2015

Been hanging round this

Town for so, so long, walk paths

Just like yesterday.

Art Prescription:  As I walked to the bus, lunch in hand, I cornered the UNC School of Nursing. Been hanging around this town for a long time. This, it occurs to me, is my life…

Pet sitting for my favorite neighbor cat…watercolor sketching her while visiting.

Sunflowers July 28, 2014

Goddess of July

Rays of silk, golden, yellow

Flower of the sun.

Art Prescription:  My hubby brought me flowers. It still thrills me! As I arranged these sunflowers, I knew I had to capture them in paint. Did a loose watercolor today…will see if it’s done tomorrow, or if I want to detail.
