I’m excited to announce that I’ve been published in The Coloring Studio a Stampington Publication. If you like to color this issue is packed with beautiful drawings! And you can also find my Art Prescription Deck with 12 coloring plates in my Etsy shop. Happy Holidays!
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!
Sunday, day of rest
A treat to get quiet, nap
Art Prescription: I’m not much of a napper, can never fall asleep during the day. I do relish laying down though and resting my body. With three cats, someone is always going to join me. Mocha, my tabby, will make biscuits for 30 minutes straight. Got a session of cat acupuncture and then up I went to the studio to play. 8 1/2 x 11 mixed media
Through open windows
Comes fall and winds of new path
Trees let go with ease.
Art Prescription: Are you wresting with letting go of something? Nature’s lesson this season is to let go and rest with full courage that new growth is next. Collage, pen and ink, and colored pencil on an envelope. I thought about using pieces of the envelope in a collage, and then I thought why not just do art on the envelope!!
Bent by steady rain
Flowers take a day off from
Perfect straight posture.
Art Prescription: Worked on a paper collage of an apple today. You can see step-by-step on my Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/BeverlyDyerArt?focus_composer=true&ref_type=bookmark
Hot bubblegum pink
Petunias spill outward
Wave to butterflies.
Art Prescription: This started as a watercolor pencil sketch in my garden on mixed-media paper. Then I took it into my studio and washed it down with water. I added watercolor loosely over pencil strokes and then spattered a bit! FUN!
Fashion and beauty
Your external expression
Does not define you.
Art Prescription: Long, lived day. Woke early, coffee (Facebook, yep), walk, swim, read, and then went to Scrap Exchange. This place is plundering heaven…junk galore…paper extravagansa.
Great finds for art journaling! I bought a $3.00 bag of mixed papers and found lots of vintage patterns.
Body moves in time
Her white hips sway and sashay
By the lush corn field.
Art Prescription: A majestic trail ride this morning with Lacey! I felt we moved as one through the wooded path and around tall, lush corn stalks. Except, she cheated and took a bite out of one…don’t tale!
After summer rain
Air fresh, scent of moist, rich earth
Droplets on petals.
Art Prescription: Set out for my evening walk with thunder in the far background. Next thing I know the wind kicks up and big drops begin to fall. I arrived home soaked…and happy for my garden!
