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!
Negative thoughts, weeds
Can wrap, wind around your heart
Art Prescription: So I did a little gardening today…actually a lot of gardening. Seems I’ve let my weeds get a bit out of control. Natures gentle lesson to remind me to tend my thoughts. Pen and ink, watercolor pencil on watercolor paper.
Cool stones, ponder in the shade
Pebbles like water.
Art Prescription: We went to the J C Raulston Arboretum today in Raleigh. Pretty place. Lots of different styled gardens. Need to go back with sketchbook. Watercolor pencil on a strip of watercolor paper.
Hot bubblegum pink
Petunias spill outward
Wave to butterflies.
Art Prescription: This started as a watercolor pencil sketch in my garden on mixed-media paper. Then I took it into my studio and washed it down with water. I added watercolor loosely over pencil strokes and then spattered a bit! FUN!
Tall, lush, green-blue grass
Ultra calm scene, horses graze
They own the meadow!
Art Prescription: Lovely morning at farm! Rode Lacey and got to hang out and do some ground work. Once done, the horses got to go out and graze in the tall grass. Yep! Makes them happy. Watercolor pencil sketch on index card.
Rain and cold move in
Good weather to snuggle with
Art Prescription: I continue to get things ready for spring… Watercolor pencil and ink on 3 x 5 index card.
