Just a Suggestion February 13, 2017

Red roses and hearts

Line the aisles at the market

In case you forgot!

Art Prescription: Valentine’s merchandise came out the day after Christmas. And now hoping to prey on those late prograsstinators, you cannot ignore the plethora of heart balloons and rose arrangements.

“What’s love got to do with it.”

Fall Posy October 25, 2015

Freshly cut flowers

Seems trees have changed overnight

Mason Jar posy.

Art Prescription:  We are so lucky here in North Carolina that flowers continue to bloom on through October. We haven’t had that first cold frost yet. So I happily plucked a Mason Jar full of flowers and set about to watercolor them. Makes me about as happy as anything…

Art Deadline October 10, 2013

Fresh air studio

Door open to breath in fall

Working on deadline!

Art Prescription:  My studio is total chaos!! Fun chaos! I’m working on lots of new paintings, so I have them spread out. At a distance perhaps I will know what to add next. Right now all of these are in progress.

The bloom, in her prime

Stood out as a tall beauty

Delicate petals.

Art Prescription:  I find enormous pleasure watching the life cycle of flowers. It’s a build up of anticipation waiting for the bloom! Then bees and butterflies, in love with color, greedily ascend. As the flower begins to fade, the delicate structure remains beautiful.
