Open studio

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…

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!

Another April!

Blue roses sparkle dreamy

Garden filled with hopes!

Art Prescription:  “To live is so startling, it leaves little time for anything else.” …….Emily Dickinson

This is the way I feel looking at a meadow of wildflowers and not being able to draw each and every one!!

Faint from spring beauty

I grasp to take it all in

This one human life.

Art Prescription:  Sometimes nature’s beauty overwhelms me.  We hiked our favorite place Mason Farm Biological Preserve, and I went to the North Carolina Botanical Gardens to sketch!!

Around golden bend

Lies a field of pods, grasses

Home for small creatures.

Art Prescription:  Hiked our favorite place, Mason Farm! The grey winter days create wonderful contrast on the golds and browns.

The circle of life

Fresh greenery, red berries

Adorn home and hearth.

Art Prescription:  A friend gave me a beautiful fresh handmade wreath today! a circle of North Carolina flora!
