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

Sunday, day of rest

A treat to get quiet, nap

Cat acupuncture!

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

What fun!!!

Apple green

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!
