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

Many colored scarves

Tied, draped, cotton, silk, crochet

Warm showy fashion!

Art Prescription:  The colors and textures of scarves are exquisite! I don’t knit or crochet, but am enamored with the plethora of yarns and fabric!

Wood fires scent the air.

Scarf, hat, and gloves become needs

Winter warm fashion!!

Geo Holiday Holly 72

Compassion:  to walk

A brief time in other’s shoes

Give of time and heart.

Art Prescription:  The holiday season brings out extremes in feelings. At any given point in life you or I may respond differently to a world where “everyone else seems normal.” No matter what holiday you celebrate, there is bound to be some roller-coaster of emotions. The perfect gift, time and heart!


Winter shadows dance

Cool silhouettes under sky

Periwinkle blue.

Art Prescription: Warm color, cool color…Winter shadows are definitely cool.  Switch it up on life’s canvas for a winter mood!


Outside trees aglow

Burnt orange, red, and yellow

Indian summer.

Art Prescription:  North Carolina fall…out in short-sleeves today. Trees are peaking in color. They seem to glow!
