In posting this beautiful bouquet of the tulips, which we brought back from the Chilliwack Tulip Festival on Friday, my thoughts are with the family and friends of Lori Kaye who was murdered in the Poway Synagogue on Saturday and to whose memory they are dedicated.
This landscape painted over thirty years ago has stood the test of time I think.
Let’s all work to make sure our planet does the same.
Yesterday I took this picture of one of our beautiful camellia’s illuminated by the afternoon sun. Today I was going to post it for a happy Easter Sunday but now it evokes a very different emotion with the news from Sri Lanka this morning. I post it now with a heavy heart and send heartfelt condolences and sympathy to all those suffering so far away but yet so close, and hope that its beauty will help ease the pain of yet another dark day.
I posted my painting of Notre Dame in November 2015 under the title Je Suis Paris in response to the terrorist attacks that had taken place in Paris on the 13th of November that year.
Today, seeing the sorrowful scenes from Paris of this iconic, majestic landmark engulfed in flames, a landmark that means so much to so many not only in Paris and France but around the world, Je Suis Paris once again.
Amidst the tranquil beauty of the Nitobe Memorial Garden on the University of British Columbia campus this morning this moment of reflection made my day,
hopefully it will make yours too.
