Guess everyone is in need of getting outside.
Our usual quiet trail that leads to the back waters of Jorden Lake was packed with bikers, joggers, and walkers.
Sam got a few nice photos of Red-headed Woodpeckers.
Not sure what these will be…Maybe secret art drops…
Adorn the garden, leaves fall
A final farewell.
Art Prescription: I will miss cut flowers! In exchange we get cool, cozy, sweatshirt weather!
Watercolor and colored pencil:
In field of plenty
Grateful for the chance to bloom
Flowers beam with pride.
Art Prescription: As always when I have a chance to share watercolor, personalities blossom. It’s a bit of a hard task I ask…to let go…let the paint do the work…stay in the now. I so enjoy where each individual takes this.
Here is my first wash:
And here are the flowers that bloomed:
Return each year along path
Rhythm of nature.
Art Prescription: I’m a creature of habit. I like familiar. I like home. I like to see nature’s bounty each year in all my familiar places.

Case of mulleygrubs
Cure is a cake or red dress
Art Prescription: I first heard of “mulleygrubs” from Ginger Andrews’ poem “The Cure.”
“The cure for the mulleygrubs,
she tells my sister,
is to get up and bake a cake.
If that doesn’t do it, put on a red dress.”
It seems listening to the news is causing me a sure case of mulleygrubs, so I paint and paint and paint!! And maybe pray…
Dream time while I sleep
Backed out of drive, spun and slid
Comforter calls me.
Art Prescription: Had my swim-suit on ready to go! Thawed my van…backed out…and went absolutely nowhere! Plan B: walked and bird-watched…lovely.
Can you hear the beautiful
As the day settles?
Art Prescription: Emotional week here in America. To soothe my soul I return to nature and her rhythms.
