A life before now

Repurposed, a new pattern

Life, double helix.

Art Prescription:  Many objects and patterns have multiple lives. A farmer’s tool cart becomes a magazine rack. An old bed becomes a porch swing. Old patterns cycle round…here is a watercolor take on IKAT.

Cat Nap September 28, 2014

Sunday, day of rest

A treat to get quiet, nap

Cat acupuncture!

Art Prescription:  I’m not much of a napper, can never fall asleep during the day. I do relish laying down though and resting my body. With three cats, someone is always going to join me. Mocha, my tabby, will make biscuits for 30 minutes straight. Got a session of cat acupuncture and then up I went to the studio to play. 8 1/2 x 11 mixed media

Simply Love May 28, 2014

Out beyond the gate

I find my breath, deep and full

On a white mare’s back.

Art Prescription:  Rode Lacey today! Some ring work…my trot a little better…and then off into the woods and corn-fields. Lean forward going up-hill and lean back going down hill. I try to let her rhythm carry my body. Trust, let go and breathe. Folks this is big.

Split Personality May 23, 2014

Two worlds, artist, nurse

Some days my hat does not fit

Either, want to rest!

Art Prescription:  I’ve been weaving my two worlds of nursing and art together for about 10 years…maybe 11…or all my life…which came first? I love both in many ways. Often it’s the transition that is hardest. What hats do you wear? Which hat fits you best? Fits your spirit?
