Christmas in July

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!

Tide of Life

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.

Art Journal:

Home Sweet Home

Hi guys!!

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.

Cheers,

Bev

Taking the Bate

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….

Crowded Trails

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…
