Freshly Cut

Roses, shades of pink

Fleshy, velvety petals

Just now, freshly cut.

Art Prescription: Heading towards summer and joyful flower cutting from my garden.

Ecstasy October 27, 2016

Can the rose define

Flowers, well if anyone

She can say it all.

Art Prescription:  I adore everything about roses…their smell, their soft, velvet petals, their slight attitude with thorns…and the simple fact that a bunch of roses says love.

Dive In April 5, 2016

Winter can feel like

Time underwater, spring is

Coming up for air.

Art Prescription:  Hard to go inside these days…I’ve got a pair of blue birds checking out the bird house right outside my studio window. How delightful if they take up residence and I can watch them raise a brood!

Come In My Muse June 2, 2014

Pause, ponder, produce

The muse, her senses keen, waits

Open door, “Come in.”

Art Prescription:  So my good friend Farley said to me today, “pause, ponder, produce.” I just adore that. I invite you to do the same!! And let your muse in to “pause, ponder, produce.” Aho!

Holiday Blues December 28, 2013

Got holiday blues?

Cope with creativity!

Draw, paint, write, journal!

Art Prescription:  As the year comes to close I come full circle with the intention of the Art Prescription. Creativity is healing. Making art boosts your feel good hormones and makes your immune system stronger. So…while you are making your new years resolution list…add something creative, like keeping a daily journal. Go ahead. Buy something pretty and just start! It will do your spirit good!

Haiku May 22, 2013 Programed to Bloom

Programed to bloom pink

Roses explode with spring glee

Blush with rich color!!

Art Prescription:  The garden is taking off now…roses, phlox, Gerber daisies! The roses are always so fresh. We cut them and bring them inside to enjoy their natural perfume. What’s blooming in your yard?
