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!!
Farrier at farm
Horses stand still for this man
Art Prescription: Graphite sketch.
Warm, bright, space where I create
Welcome friends, neighbors!
Art Prescription: Today was a cold, wet, rainy day! And my friends and neighbors still came out to celebrate my open studio with me. Thanks y’all!! For those of you who live a little far off…
Rich yellows, orange, umber
Art Prescription: A hike at Mason Farm reveals nature’s palette. The perfect mix of hues, light, and shadow.
Farm entrance, dogwood
Cockle-berry takes hitch-hike
Horses in the woods.
Art Prescription: Both of us in need of clearing our minds, my friend and I. I went and led Finn out of the woods, rode a bit. Then we both took in the calm that is the farm, to clear our heads and sketch!
Some days a blank page
Stares at me, my muse protests
Meanwhile I collage.
Art Prescription: While hiking our favorite place, Mason Farm, NC, we ran into another couple about half-way around the loop. They had just seen two bear cubs running off into the forest!! Then on the trail we saw bear scat. Holy nature walk! We only did one loop today. Back at the studio I tapped into nothing particular. Trying to plan holiday workshops…
Quick little hummer
Zooms up into trees, brief rest
Then back for more sweets.
Art Prescription: On my walk watching hummingbirds dive lantana. As I approached they flew up into the trees. This is another miniature art pieces. Watercolor artist trading card.
Smell of vetiver
Rich, earthy bog, sweet wetlands
Guppies, frogs, and snakes!
Art Prescription: Snakes! Yikes, but some people love seeing them. They are nature’s creations too. As we head into warmer weather, the bog awakens, and the water is teaming with life. Remember when you looked at bog water under a microscope? Spirogyra…Be curious.
A brilliant blue jewel
Sings to the meadow.
Art Prescription: Lots of birds today at Mason Farm!! This Indigo Bunting and a Black-chinned Hummingbird were sharing tree space.
