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!
Keep violets company
By the rolling creek.
Art Prescription: Sam and I found a new place to hike today. A wooded trail by a creek with wildflowers everywhere. Really magical. We meandered through pine and hard-wood forests and across open meadows.
Army of songbirds
Descend on intruder hawk
The war of nature.
Art Prescription: While taking a ride on my bike, I noticed a bunch of racket going on in the woods. I stopped and scanned the trees for the action. Then I saw a rooster-sized hawk being bombarded by many songbirds…cardinals, bluejays, woodpeckers…They were all working as a team to make the intruder flee. Finally after much feather pecking, the hawk took off to nearby pines. The persistent songbirds followed. Amazing!
Like a champagne burst
Trees have exploded with leaves.
A curtain of green.
Art Prescription: Amazing what a bit of warm weather and some rain does to the forest! In a weeks time things have at least doubled.
The woods are salted
With whitish-pink Spring Beauties
Violets dress path.
Art Prescription: Active day at Mason Farm!! Lots of wildlife, including finding an owl nested in a hole in a tree!!
On the forest ridge
In a mass of winter browns
Art Prescription: Walking in the woods this time of year, the changes happen in days. Seemed these daffodils appeared like magic!
