Sew what, open heart
You give and your heart feels warm
Does a body good.
Art Prescription: Never underestimate the power of giving of your time, your energy, your ear, your heart…someone out there needs you.
Mixed media with pen and ink, fabric, and improvisational sewing:
Steady drip drip drip
Snow melts, water runs to creek
Drop of joy travels.
Art Prescription: The snow is pretty, but kind-of glad to see grass again.
Art journal collage with watercolor and sewing:
Life, many layers
The lived days add, a year
To lead with your heart.
Art Prescription: How you spend your days add up to how your spend your year…
Collage and sewing on paper:
Birds bathe, babbling creek
Preen in warm winter sunshine
Melting snow runs south.
Art Prescription: Walked Mason Farm with my love today. There are still patches of snow on the ground, but the birds don’t mind. They hop about energetically on a brisk January day.
Index card with colored pencil, fabric, and improvisational sewing:
Freshly washed by rain
Nothing compares, sweet basil
For corn succotash.
Art Prescription: The scent of basil after a good summer rain is intoxicating. So I brought some inside to add to my fresh corn off-the-cob and tomato succotash.
Part of my mission for the Art Prescription is to encourage others to create. Keep an art journal, paint, or sketch. I’m developing some materials you can use in your next mix-media project available in my shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/beverlydyer?ref=l2-shopheader-name
