New Years Eve Walk December 31, 2016

Leaves shiver in breeze

Cool, grey, wintry, cloudy, sky

Fluffy birds huddle.

Art Prescription:  I can’t think of a better way to end the year than a nature walk with my sketchbook and my love. Just us and our footsteps together for a 25th New Years Eve. Our lives are blessed and happy, and my wish for everyone is to find the simple beauty of each and every day. Oh yea, and make some art! Here’s to 2017!

Still Life January 14, 2016

A huddle of leaves

A January still life

Together we fall.

Art Prescription:  Perfect temperature for a nature walk. Lots of birds singing, robins, nuthatches, cedar waxwings, chickadees, cardinals. I was looking to see what might be coming out of the ground, but instead found this bunch of leaves an interesting subject.

A Day Off September 11, 2014

Blue Skies September

Place where time stands still

Gentle wind rolls across field

Horses graze on grass.

Art Prescription:  Took my sketchbook and big old sun hat out to Blue Skies today. Took a chair and sat in the paddock, being part of the herd. So hot.  They were fine to just let me be there. We know you and you are okay to hang-out with us. They stood lazy, swishing their tails against the flies, sun on their strong backs.
