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!
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.
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!!
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!
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!!
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!!
Ebb and flow, that’s life
Magician works the puppet
Cut the strings? Go free!!
Art Prescription: I’ll leave this one up to you…
Wine glass beads with sweat
Refreshing French white wine cools
Tingles on hot day.
Art Prescription: It is almost July, but wow it’s getting hot. Here in NC the forecast for the next three days is 105 degrees. Looks like outside activities will be early morning or probably just the pool!! Today’s quote comes from Tao Te Ching:
“See the world as your self.
Have faith in the way things are.
Love the world as your self;
then you can care for all things.”
Big billowing clouds
Climb upward with heavy dark
Art Prescription: This time of year we can expect thunder-storms in the evening. It’s hot and humid, and all that moisture gets sucked back up into the atmosphere and has to go somewhere! Bottled energy. My garden is thankful for the downpour. I’m working on pen and ink drawings that I hope will be turned into stamps. If you ever study the lines of a flower you will certainly be seduced!
