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…
Farm entrance, dogwood
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!
Artful plate arrives
Basil, limes, jalapenos
Art Prescription: We went with good friends today to an authentic Vietnamese restaurant. Experiential, really, proving that you don’t have to travel far to find food prepared with deep cultural roots. Each plate they brought to the table was a work of art! Here is my sketch…
Delicious spicy food
Drunken noodles, yum!!
Art Prescription: We don’t eat out much because I love to cook, but tonight we went with friends to a restaurant called “Twisted Noodle.” My dish was perfect! Spicy food calls for a good beer or wine!
On the bus, the scent
Freshly brewed hot hazelnut
Coffee on the go!
Art Prescription: How do you take your coffee? Slowly…while you wake up…or quickly out the door!!
Black-eyed peas and corn
On the cob, of course, with squash!
A harvest dinner!
Art Prescription: It’s Tuesday, the day we buy fresh local farmer’s market produce on Lomo Market!! Triangle friends find a stop near you!! http://lomomarket.com/
Love is currency
Thai soup, home-made bread, laundry!
Account status: Full!
Art Prescription: In life there are many hours we simply cannot bill for. The major categories are house-work, yard-work, food gathering and preparing, and for mom’s with kids this list is infinity. The pay is love. Creativity comes in many forms!! What a luxury to be able to spend a day adding to life’s account with hand and heart!
