Wild Lily April 17, 2017

White glow in meadow

Lilies among tall grasses

Wild Easter Lily.

Art Prescription:  I’ve been seeing these beautiful lilies in the woods and meadows at Mason Farm. They are Atamasco Lily (Zephranthes atamasco) and they flourish in wetlands.

Suddenly February 12, 2017

Suddenly it’s spring

A shift in the wind, a tease

Winter is not done.

Art Prescription:  Very spring-like day here in North Carolina. I have a feeling that winter has another round of frigid. Right now…I turned my AC on…in February?

Design June 19, 2016

Infinite design

The ultimate architect

Snowflake and flower.

Art Prescription: Seems the same perfect designs show up in all of nature’s creations. My wonderful neighbors brought me a bouquet of Bachelor’s Button. I did this study of a single flower.
