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…


A dried sage bundle
Native American herb
For a house clearing.

Art Prescription: One of my biggest goals in life is balance. I seek peace, simplicity, harmony.


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!

Travel with a book

With your imagination

Or pack bags and go!

Art Prescription:  Some people love to travel and others are home-bodies. A “vacation” is necessary for your mind, body, and spirit. How do you get away?


Just be in the flow

The river runs to the sea

Float and be, let go.

Art Prescription:  Sometimes the best thing you can do is to simply let go and float. Quit trying so hard to swim up stream! Do you even know where you are trying to get? So float, be buoyant, weightless…

Down by the lazy river

Notice, observe, thoughts

What is influencing you?

Mind, body, spirit!

Art Prescription:  Are we what we think? Can we control our thoughts, therefore affecting our bodies? Who is driving this boat?

August bloom 300

Job, calling, career?

Does your heart leap at new day?

Is your ego stroked?

Art Prescription:  At my nursing job we are hosting an undergraduate student program. Eagerly these young folks follow the surgeon I work for and try to absorb enough information to guide their next move in life. It’s so important to choose something that feeds your spirit and gives your ego a boost. And to choose a vocation from your heart versus what people want you to be!!
