I taught a wonderful group of eager folks today at the NC Botanical Garden.
My style of teaching is to show several demonstrations of techniques and then invite each student to paint what inspires them.
It’s alway so rewarding to see how individual each painting turns out.
This is my demo painting. I added some details back in my studio with pen and ink.
Who were you before
The world made its fast imprint
On your soft young soul.
Life, bits and pieces
Some fit together, others
Ask that you make change.
Art Prescription: Life is full of messages. If we pay attention our paths are a way out.
It gets confusing when the heart is involved.
New Journals coming together. Great place to vent!!
So here I am moving into a North Carolina fall.
I really like hiking!
Basically I’m a happy dog!
All along the road
Trees are boasting final green
On their way to fall.
Art Prescription: The season’s always stir existential thoughts. So beautiful and timeless.
Tiny Journal in colored pencil;
July has fury
Days of heat index, no rain
I run sprinkler.
I painted more snow scenes:
In Victorian times women began their Christmas arts and crafts in July.
Seems cooling to paint a snow scene when the heat index is 110 degrees!!
Thank goodness my studio has air con. How did they do it in their hoop skirts and corsets and no air conditioning? No wonder the vapors happened so often!
Christmas Cow in acrylic, ( need to add shadows).
Bits, pieces, and whole
The tide brings in all of life
Each day with sunrise.
Art Prescription: No matter where we are in life, the sun rises. We must face the day with our good times and in times of loss.
Time heals our losses, and hope moves us forward.
I’m home from the beach and our house had spotty reception. Not a bad thing for vacation I suppose.
I did post daily on Instagram.
This morning I did a grandson and grandmother (social distancing) art class in my backyard. What fun!
Hope you all are staying healthy and creative as our changed world moves forward.
Spoken word dangles
A bit of fodder for mind
You don’t take the bate.
Art Prescription: have you ever been tested!? When you know someone is trying to get you to take the bate?
Do you realize when others cross boundaries due to their issues?
Relationships are challenging. I really just want to cruise down the middle lane….
