Warm and cozy eve
Care for a special kitty
Sketch with Matilda.
Art Prescription: Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know Matilda, the cat I helped rescue from 9 degree winter nights. She then found her forever home with my neighbors, and lucky me I pet sit her often as they are world travelers! I love her like one of my own, and when her parents are gone I sketch and read at her house.
Squirreling away seed
Little “hands” work to gather
Sunflower seed pet.
Art Prescription: It’s hard to feed the birds and not the squirrels. They are master-minds at breaking bird feeders. So I enjoy watching their acrobatic antics.
8 1/2 x 8 1/2 watercolor and chop that says “hope”
Alone, not lonely
Shear peacefulness, quiet bliss
Hear your own footsteps!
Art Prescription: Do you enjoy being alone? I do. Even more so when the world is whirling away at the speed of light. I love it so quiet that the only thing I hear are the squirrels chattering, the birds chirping, and the crunch of leaves under each step! and the swish of my paint brush!
Last weekend light fades
Squirrels scamper to their nests
Jewels fall from trees!
Art Prescription: Long lived weekend! Yard work, pumpkins, cupcakes!! Lots of being outside! Try watercolor sketching a leaf or two! This one will go out as a Haiku O Gram tomorrow!!
Faded while impatient March
Threatens to blow in.
Art Prescription: Each spring as cold and warm air meet here in North Carolina we have thunderstorms and high winds. I worry about the birds and the squirrels and their nests. I always have to remind myself that “Mother Nature Knows Best.”
The storms do pass…just as with life. Write about a stormy time in your life, vent. No one else needs to see, but getting it down and out will serve you well.
