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

Roads white with snow, ice

Long walk to grocery store

Sleet clicks on bamboo!

Art Prescription:  So cool to stand quietly under a canopy of bamboo and listen to the sleet click, click, tap, tap.

January 72

Trill of wetland frogs

Music fills the lush creekside

Water reflects sky.

Art Prescription:  Frog medicine is a call for rain, cleansing. Our forecast is for temperatures to drop into the teens overnight…brrrr. Take cover frog!!

Hope for Japan

Winter rain, not snow

Tap, tap, taps, on my jacket

Peaceful halos, light.

Art Prescription:  I’ve always loved the way light gets reflected in the rain. Even a stoplight on a rainy or misty night creates a wonderful prism of color on the street, a painting!

January 72

Years end reflection

Light, shadow dance on water

A drop ripples out.

Art Prescription:  As the year comes to a close it seems human nature to reflect. Each day, every movement, our thoughts, ripple out and effect our lives. Art and creativity can help channel emotion, bring us joy, and raise healthy brain chemicals! Go on now…start that project!!

Free from Desire detail

Ocean rolls in, melts

Eases to calm sound ripples

Current swirls beneath.

Art Prescription:  Walked to the end of the island today where the ocean meets the sound. I left a Haiku O Gram there!!
