Can the rose define

Flowers, well if anyone

She can say it all.

Art Prescription:  I adore everything about roses…their smell, their soft, velvet petals, their slight attitude with thorns…and the simple fact that a bunch of roses says love.

Tropicana Rose

Delicate hues of soft pinks

Sumptuous orange.

Art Prescription:  So lovely to have cut flowers from your own garden.

Index card with watercolor:

ICAD June 14

Certain slant of light

The ordinary thing turns

Magnificent whole.

Art Prescription:  On any given day…at any given hour…things look different.

Stained Glass Rose 2

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…


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!

Blue Skies Oct 13

Pause, ponder, produce

The muse, her senses keen, waits

Open door, “Come in.”

Art Prescription:  So my good friend Farley said to me today, “pause, ponder, produce.” I just adore that. I invite you to do the same!! And let your muse in to “pause, ponder, produce.” Aho!

Farley Rose


Rose grows empty lot

Her red blooms tell a story

An era gone by.

Art Prescription:  We are all planting seeds. Some we will see grow and flourish, and others we will leave behind for the future. Plant well my friend…
