Blue Tractor September 21, 2014

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.

Fresh Basil July 16, 2014

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

Pillar June 7, 2014

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.
