As soon as I leave
I want to return to this
Place where geese fly by.
Art Prescription: Meadows are my favorite spots. And a meadow with horses…well “As soon as I leave, I want to return.”
Watercolor, pen and ink, 5 x 11.
Freshly mowed meadow
Scent of dried grass, blue birds dip
Catch insects mid-flight.
Art Prescription: Sunday hike at Merritt’s Pasture. The field was freshly mowed, except they left islands of milk-weed for the monarch butterflies. Saw cardinals, titmice, chickadees, blue-birds, and a juvenile hawk. Watercolor sketch with pen and ink.
Freshly washed by rain
Nothing compares, sweet basil
For corn succotash.
Art Prescription: The scent of basil after a good summer rain is intoxicating. So I brought some inside to add to my fresh corn off-the-cob and tomato succotash.
Part of my mission for the Art Prescription is to encourage others to create. Keep an art journal, paint, or sketch. I’m developing some materials you can use in your next mix-media project available in my shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/beverlydyer?ref=l2-shopheader-name
A pillar of strength
Horses, with their all knowing
Grateful for the ride.
Art Prescription: I rode Lacey today at Blue Skies of Mapleview. She is so sweet…oh dear…heart tug! On a whim, I stopped by another local horse barn. There I met Victoria, a beautiful girl, and her owner. I did a brush painting of her, trying to capture her strong features and gorgeous lines.
