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

Wind rattles dried leaves

Bare branches click together

Cold rain front moves in.

Art Prescription:  A very strange warm weekend for December. A front with rain brings winter back.

cold front

Winter’s hand plays deal

Cold spreads, coat and hat required

Spring at finger-tips!

Art Prescription:  Although my walk today was in a wintery mist, I know spring is coming! The signs of spring lift my spirits.

trout lily 72

Roads white with snow, ice

Long walk to grocery store

Sleet clicks on bamboo!

Art Prescription:  So cool to stand quietly under a canopy of bamboo and listen to the sleet click, click, tap, tap.

January 72

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

Suit wet from last swim

Brisk walk into indoor pool.

Ah, the rhythm now.

Art Prescription:  Indoor swimming in the winter is meditation. Stroke by stroke my mind wanders…Spring by the river!!
