Trail blazers, carving a path

Into the future!

Art Prescription:  Spent most of my day clearing a new path for horse-back riding! Beautiful day, and I can’t wait to bring Finn over to these beautiful woods.

Makes you feel alive

Your senses on edge, it’s real

Spend a day…a life.

Art Prescription:  What makes you feel alive? When you wake in the morning and put two feet on the ground, what gives you that feeling of “Yes!” Okay…well do that more.

Farm sanctuary

Fresh air, a religion

Horses my teachers.

Art Prescription:  I’ve spent much of my holiday time out at the farm. It occurs to me that I’m learning patience, tolerance, and that throwing bales of hay to horses is extremely therapeutic!! Lovely views…

Aw-hee, caw, caw, caw

December sounds from the farm

Donkey, crow, blue-birds!

Art Prescription:  I somehow spent my entire day at the farm. Even took a “nap” in the back of my van. So peaceful! Just the sunshine and sounds of the critters.

Four seconds to flame

Neighbors come out, winter night

Streets lined with candles.

Art Prescription:  I’ve been heading up luminaries for our neighborhood for about 8 years. The thing that always brings me joy is to see neighbors coming out and working together as a community to create a beautiful winter night.

Thank you to my local followers for coming to my Open Studio!!

I am listening

To the winter wind, trees sway

Year end moves forward.

Art Prescription:  Winter is upon us…into the 20’s tonight. How grateful I am to have a warm house and heat that comes on at a moments touch. Blankets and quilts and fluffy robes…truly the riches of the holidays.
