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

Alabama sun
Sets over sprawling flat land
Pink rings horizon.



Purple mountain range
Bright waves of pink and orange
Follow the sunset.


First cold frost last night

Green fella steals warmth from rocks

Hibernation time.

Art Prescription:  While walking at Mason Farm today we saw two snakes. A pretty citron-green one and a black one. Since winter is sneaking in, I wasn’t expecting these slithering beauties. Guess like us they are seeking the last bit of warm sunshine!


Fall evening light

Ethereal pink glow, as

Clouds reflect sunset.

Art Prescription:  Even on a cloudy day there is color!

pink glow

Twilight, forest wakes

Frogs rib-it, birds lullabye

Owls begin to prowl.

Art Prescription:  Watching the sun go down and listening to the night-time creatures awaken is musical!
