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

Snow recedes, gives way

To green and the sounds of spring

Cardinals call out.

Art Prescription:  It’s chilly, and the birds are singing the winter blues. They know spring is around the corner.

Snow Recedes

Two shiny black crows

Velvet against deep, hard frost

Scratch steel blades of grass.

Art Prescription:  Crunch goes the ground.

Seemed high for a pair of socks

Nine degrees! Warm feet!

Art Prescription:  Mother Nature is kicking up her heels! Probably with wool sox!

White snowdrops appear

Out of frozen winter ground

Brave for December.


Watercolor swirls

Negative painting makes snow

Seasonal delight!

Art Prescription:  I taught an Art Prescription workshop today, holiday card making. It’s so fun to play with swirly trees!
