Open studio

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!

Blue Skies Oct 13

Calm after the storm

Sticks and branches litter street

All connections down.

Art Prescription:  Quiet after last evenings storm. No television, and no internet…kind-of nice.

Bye Bye Summer

Dark storm front sweeps in

Meadow moves, chaotic waves

June rain soaks garden.

Art Prescription: Watching a rolling storm front move in is miraculous. Clouds constantly changing, wind picks up, temperature drops. The smell of rain coming…quick…go inside! Downpour.

Rainy day nature

Sharp wind blows umbrella up!

Peaceful, creek babbles.

Art Prescription:  Even on a grey, windy, rainy, cold, day, I need to get out and convene with nature! Nature walking in the rain is actually quiet soothing. Droplets pitter-patter your umbrella, everything smells fresh, and the sounds of water running downstream is musical.

Purple Wildflower Meadow

Confused by the wind

The sweet rose turned into a

Passionate poppy!!

Art Prescription:  In a weeks time, we’ve had snow, ice, and 70 degrees!

purple poppies

Trill of wetland frogs

Music fills the lush creekside

Water reflects sky.

Art Prescription:  Frog medicine is a call for rain, cleansing. Our forecast is for temperatures to drop into the teens overnight…brrrr. Take cover frog!!

Hope for Japan
