Cold rainy morning

Warm blankets and cats call me

Back into my bed.

Art Prescription:  Saturday morning. No place in particular to be. It’s cloudy and rainy and cold…brrrr. Warm cats, warm bed, is this really a decision?

Using my collage paper with the 1903 ledger and flowers,  I then sewed my index card sketches onto the paper. Fun!!!

Dream of June garden

Lost in the scent of flowers

Where butterflies fly.

Art Prescription: Played with mixed media on a YES canvas today. Laid acrylic paint down with a brayer, then added some collage and other marks. Then wrote in French, “Look for me in the garden, where butterflies fly and I’m lost in the flowers.”

Sew what, open heart

You give and your heart feels warm

Does a body good.

Art Prescription:  Never underestimate the power of giving of your time, your energy, your ear, your heart…someone out there needs you.

Mixed media with pen and ink, fabric, and improvisational sewing:

Nature journal style study

Tear, glue, draw, and paint.

Art Prescription:  So fun to work spontaneously with my art buddies! As we talked, our hands moved and art was made.

Fall wildflowers bloom

Dot the meadows and woods for

Butterflies to feed.

Art Prescription:  Hiked Mason Farm this past weekend. Beautiful wildflowers and lots of butterflies. Feeds my muse.

Here is a little drawing for you to color! You can print it off and color with your favorite art tools! Secret…I’m working on a new Art Prescription (™) adult coloring product…due out October!

She flows with tide, girl with the

Yellow umbrella

Art Prescription:  Girl on the beach take 3…or I lost count. Not satisfied with the final watercolor, again my colors muddy. So I paper collaged with torn pieces from other not so great watercolors. I kind of like the mixed media end product. A good example of how no work is ever wasted. I save every piece that should be filed in the trash. And weeks or months later I see that piece has the perfect color I need for a collage…let her rip!!
