Tending the Thoughts September 7, 2014

Negative thoughts, weeds

Can wrap, wind around your heart

Suffocating growth.

Art Prescription:  So I did a little gardening today…actually a lot of gardening. Seems I’ve let my weeds get a bit out of control. Natures gentle lesson to remind me to tend my thoughts. Pen and ink, watercolor pencil on watercolor paper.

Diva May 12, 2014

Soft, scented, clean sheets

New purple summer night-gown

Simple-life diva.

Art Prescription:  It doesn’t take much for me to feel like a princess. A day in the sun, pulling weeds optimal, time in my studio, a cat purr, long walks with my hubby. Blessed!

We are what we think March 25, 2014

Expect clouds, get rain

How you spend your day, your life

Adds up, the raw truth.

Art Prescription:  Science is learning about our brain’s ability to adapt and rewire. This phenomenon, known as neuroplasticity, suggests there are concrete and provable benefits to exercising the brain. Doing art exercises the brain. Positive thinking exercises the brain.

“How you spend your days, is how you spend your life.”   Think about it!!

Positive Reinforcement December 12, 2013

What IS working now?

Focus on the positive!

Lavender, salt, bath!!!

Art Prescription:  So my yoga teacher has been saying to us, “focus on what feels good, what feels right, what serves your breath, your body?” How can we pay attention to what IS working! Our health, our wellness, our spouses, our homes, and a hot bath with lavender and salts!! Namaste!!
