Cozy purr buddy

Contentment at my bedtime

Keeps me company.

Art Prescription: Anyone with a fur baby knows the satisfaction of having them by your side.

Simple pleasures.

Pen and ink sketch:

Day Hike

A drive, rural roads

Barns and pastures, fall color

Woodland hike to damn.

Art Prescription: We set out this morning on a day hike. Just a 50 minute drive outside of Chapel Hill and you land in Alamance County, Saxipahaw, and great hiking!

Yes, we did pass the brewery going and coming home. Next time maybe we will have a cold brew!

This park appeals to a lot of people: hikers, disc golf enthusiast, historians, and equestrians.

We stopped to rest at the damn. Diva got to stretch and I got to sketch.

Blur Between Lines

Like summer to fall

There is a blur between lines

Where it’s not either.

Art Prescription: Looking so forward to heading out to ride Finn in a sweatshirt! But hold on cowgirl, not yet, it’s still in the 90’s.

Maybe this is a good life lesson. Things are not always all or none, but somewhere in the middle.

I started this very loose watercolor and may add much or a little detail. Depends on the blur of my mood.

Favorite Things March 24, 2017

Nestled in the leaves

One stem at a time, then bloom

Fiddleheads salute.

Art Prescription:  With my sketchbook and a box of colored pencils, I headed off to the North Carolina Botanical Garden in search of the ephemeral wildflowers.

Still Life January 14, 2016

A huddle of leaves

A January still life

Together we fall.

Art Prescription:  Perfect temperature for a nature walk. Lots of birds singing, robins, nuthatches, cedar waxwings, chickadees, cardinals. I was looking to see what might be coming out of the ground, but instead found this bunch of leaves an interesting subject.
