This is the final weekend of a stunning exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery:
Guo Pei: Couture Beyond.
The exhibit was first presented by the Savannah College of Art and Design in September 2017 and we have been fortunate enough to have had it here in Vancouver since last October. Here are a few photos I took on my iPhone yesterday that hardly do justice to the glorious artistic vision of Guo Pei, China’s preeminent couturière. You can read more about the exhibition here at the Vancouver Art Gallery web site.
Beginning the new year today feeling a little abstracted
As we say farewell to the old year and welcome in the new, remembering one of this year’s glorious moments. Thank you Tessa and Scott 🇨🇦
Happy New Year everyone.
The Bright Nights Christmas Train ride in Stanley Park, Vancouver is always one of the highlights of the Xmas season and all tickets sold go to support the BC Burn Fund, which partners every year with the Vancouver Park Board to present a truly magical event as you can see.
Special thanks to the BC Professional Fire Fighters and all the volunteer groups who spend countless hours making it all possible.
Merry Xmas to one and all.
Vanier Park, Vancouver – Tuesday 4.12.18
Fishermans’ Wharf, False Creek, Vancouver – Wednesday 5.12.18
Nothing like a little magic with which to start the week. This morning’s sunrise illuminated my favourite willow tree on Kitsilano Beach that has featured in so many posts on thechangingpalette
over the past few years. Definitely another one worthy of sharing.
Antigua study I – 29.11.18 – water-colour/pen and ink
Four years ago I posted about the charitable organization Heath for Humanity and the great work of their surgical missions over many years to Antigua, Guatemala. The post included a video presentation of theirs for those of you who would like to learn more about them, and you can visit their website here: h4h. Earlier this month I had the privilege of joining them for a week, working with wonderful dedicated colleagues who were making a real difference to the lives of so many; heroes all.
Here are a few of my memorable images from Antigua which include the dazzling yellows of the iconic Arco de Santa Catalina, the colourful pastels of the buildings and the Fuego volcano in the distance, which erupted once again just over a week ago.
