Horses stand still for this man

Gentle pedicure.

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!

Serendipity

Two paths cross, coincidence?

It all falls in place.

Art Prescription:  Many times decisions are suddenly made, based on a surprising event or meeting. There are subtle clues to guide you. Other times it’s a storm, deluge really, and in an instant you just KNOW!

Dark storm front sweeps in

Meadow moves, chaotic waves

June rain soaks garden.

Art Prescription: Watching a rolling storm front move in is miraculous. Clouds constantly changing, wind picks up, temperature drops. The smell of rain coming…quick…go inside! Downpour.

Rainy day nature

Sharp wind blows umbrella up!

Peaceful, creek babbles.

Art Prescription:  Even on a grey, windy, rainy, cold, day, I need to get out and convene with nature! Nature walking in the rain is actually quiet soothing. Droplets pitter-patter your umbrella, everything smells fresh, and the sounds of water running downstream is musical.

Air clean after rain

Beech leaves glow against hardwoods
