Hummingbird Moth by Rebecca Zook


Art Therapy
Post 15

.
This painting of a White-lined Sphinx Moth is...somewhere... It, along with a second piece, was part of a traveling art show that featured pollinators and I decided to focus on the more unusual rather than bees and butterflies. I have pretty much lost track of the pieces at this point. The show was to last 2-years. I'm hoping the moths fly back to me soon.
.
The first time I encountered one of these guys in my own yard, the more common name of hummingbird moth certainly made sense. A hummingbird is exactly what I mistook it for until I got a better look. I'll try to find a video of one and post it in the comments and you'll understand why.

Afternoon Stroll | Texas Landscape by Rebecca Zook


Art Therapy
Post 13


Afternoon Stroll
Acrylic on Panel | 11” x 17”
Sometimes you need to get lost. Disconnect from day-to-day stress and unwind. Nature engages your senses in a way that soothes. The sun’s warmth on your skin, the scent of wildflowers in the breeze, the flitter and twitter of the songbirds and gentle hills glowing with vivid color are waiting for you. Just take the first step and lose yourself in the moment.

Màthair of Skye | Heilan Coo by Rebecca Zook


Art Therapy
Post 12

Màthair of Skye
Acrylic on Panel | 20”x16”

It was more difficult to find a Heilan Coo in Scotland than you might expect for such an iconic creature. Fortunately, touring the countryside in a rented motorhome gave my husband and I plenty of opportunity to look. This lovely lady was spotted on the Isle of Skye. The northernmost of the major islands in the Inner Hebrides. Adding a little Scots Gaelic to the title seemed appropriate. Màthair translates to mother.

Spring Blanket | Texas Wildflowers by Rebecca Zook






Art Therapy
Post 11


Bluebonnets and Paintbrushes are blooming across the Texas landscape and I'm longing to get out and see them. Here is a taste of the next wave of wildflowers that will appear.

Spring Blanket
24" x 18" | Acrylic on Panel

Commonly called "Blanket Flowers" or "Indian Blankets" these say Texas to me more than the bluebonnets. Though beautiful, bluebonnets are short-lived and a bit finicky; needing a certain level of rainfall to be at their best. Blanket flowers appear after the bluebonnets and revel in the blistering Texas summer sun. They represent the hardiness of true Texans to me as they cover the rolling hills forming a blanket across the land.

Rainbow Illusion | Texas Landscape by Rebecca Zook



Art Therapy

Post 10

Rainbows signify hope and that's precisely what we need right now. The world has changed. In the end, we will mourn what has been lost and those who have been lost. We have also gained perspective as a whole about who and what should be important in our lives and that change is possible. I just hope these lessons aren't lost as normalcy returns. I have hope, they won't.

Rainbow Illusion

Acrylic on Panel | 6” x 8”

You can see it, but not touch. Purity of color. A hidden door opened and reality revealed, but Is it real? Seek it and get no closer. Science and dreams. Logic and emotion collide when chasing rainbows.

Devotion | Dog Portrait by Rebecca Zook




Art Therapy
Post 9

This is Floyd. Floyd has a girlfriend that lives across the street. Her name is Daisy and she is a stunning Australian Shepherd. I’d call them star-crossed lovers separated by fences and the COVID stay-at-home order, but in reality, she won’t give him the time of day. He sits starry eyed at the front of our fence just hoping to catch a glimpse of her.

Before we knew the new neighbors had an Aussie and Aussie puppy, Daisy ran up to my husband when he arrived home from work and lay down at his feet. It was cold, rainy and she didn’t have a collar, so naturally we brought her inside. At the time, Floyd had wanted nothing to do with our new adoptee puppy, Ziggy, and avoided him like the plague to come, extreme social distancing, but Daisy was different. It was true love at least from his perspective. Daisy was utterly indifferent to Floyd's gentle nudges, invitations to bound around the yard or a walk under the moonlight. She spent the night with us and as I was on my way the next morning to check her for a microchip, I thought I ought to ask the neighbors just in case. She was theirs and ever since Floyd has been vying for her attention at every turn. He's a young, vibrant, handsome, albeit neutered, male and if she can't see his ability to love deeply then she doesn't deserve his loyalty. If only I could convince him of that.
.
Floyd is another shelter rescue. This time from Breckenridge, TX. Thanks to Judith C. Olsson Smith who shared a post with me knowing at the time we had recently lost an Australian Shepherd to cancer.

Devotion
8x6 | Acrylic on Panel

You see it every day in their eyes. Love and trust. Devoted to their human, a dog is a gift from the heavens. One we probably don’t deserve. Service dog, working dog or lap dog, all with the same goal. To please you.
