It was the first time, and it wouldn’t be the last.
On January 7th 2015 I spelled out Je Suis Charlie on my studio floor. It was the first time. Six days later on January 11th, as millions marched around the world, I used my palette to express solidarity in the best way I knew how. Later in the year on November 14th it became necessary once again to turn to my palette and to write the three words, Je suis Paris. Then on March 22nd of this year I became Belge et Bruxelles, and as recently as June 12th, Orlando.
With a heavy heart and in response to this week’s Discover Challenge: Opening line
Happy First Birthday to our beautiful granddaughter
whose birth we were celebrating a year ago today.
Love, love, love.
The Story Behind The Door…or the muse that meows.
As I arrive at the studio today behind the door my unclothed muse awaits me…
purring quietly and sitting patiently, ready to inspire me with her presence.
Her name is Sunday and she is greatly loved by us all.
This magnificent carving by the late great Haida artist Bill Reid, entitled The Raven and The First Men, can be seen in the Bill Reid Rotunda of the Museum of Anthropology on the campus of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.
The stunning beauty of this work with all of its majestic curves is truly breathtaking and you can read about its meaning on the Bill Reid Foundation web site.
It seems the perfect photographic way with which to celebrate National Aboriginal Day today.

A second in response to this week’s Photo Challenge from Cheri who asks us to:
“Find inspiration in the curves around you.”
The sensational sinuous curves of Antelope Canyon, Arizona
This photo from Lower Antelope Canyon will be familiar to those of you who follow thechangingpalette. Our visit there just over a year ago was simply spectacular and I was greatly honoured when Cheri featured the mesh gallery I created from the trip in The Daily Post’s Photos We Loved last September.
More curves to follow.
