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

Soft fur, round brown eyes

Hibernates in the winter

Fiercely protective.

Art Prescription:  As the season steadily changes, so do I. The days are getting shorter. I look forward to cozy socks and fires.


Bear ATC 


Sleet bounces off coat

Leaves shiver, abrasive wind

Early spring betrayed.

Art Prescription:  Sleeting again in NC…on March 6th! Wildflowers are trying to bloom!

Black and red

Two shiny black crows

Velvet against deep, hard frost

Scratch steel blades of grass.

Art Prescription:  Crunch goes the ground.

Along the lake edge

Geese and ducks huddle for warmth

Blue heron stands proud.

Art Prescription:  Layers, gloves, scarf, mittens…it’s cold out there. And totally worth it. I think the ducks are courting.

Eighteen ninety-nine

Seemed high for a pair of socks

Nine degrees! Warm feet!

Art Prescription:  Mother Nature is kicking up her heels! Probably with wool sox!
