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!
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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!!
Chance of snow flurries
Stirs fun childhood memories
A day off! to start!!
Art Prescription: The excitement of a winter storm warning here in North Carolina permeates the air. Bet the grocery shelves are stripped clean of milk and bread!! Kind-of funny, kind of real! Confession…I find myself looking out the window…is it snowing yet!!
Deep, thick fog hovers
A front for spring-like weather
Winter teases us.
Art Prescription: Many metaphors can be found in the weather…
Around golden bend
Lies a field of pods, grasses
Home for small creatures.
Art Prescription: Hiked our favorite place, Mason Farm! The grey winter days create wonderful contrast on the golds and browns.
