Bryce Canyon  9.5.15
 
A painting repurposed from 2015 after our memorable visit to spectacular Bryce Canyon with which to say Happy 102nd Birthday to the treasured  US National Park Service.

the power of teal


 
Celebrating the athleticism and sublime grace, artistry, strength, and courage of Simone Biles who reigned supreme at the US Gymnastics Championships last weekend.
 

The teal leotard she wore was to honour the victims of sexual assault, being a survivor herself.

“The colour is for the survivors. I stand with all of them…”  Simone Biles

A true hero and inspiration for our times.

a bouquet for heroes


 
On World Humanitarian Day this bouquet from today’s afternoon in the studio is to pay tribute to all those who risk their lives around the world every day to serve those suffering and in need. They are all heroes.
 


 

 

with special thanks to C & V for the beautiful bouquet

the sky blue twins


 
Out walking on Spanish Banks this morning on this beautiful British Columbia Day these two caught my eye and seemed to express what this holiday is all about. Since this week’s Lens-Artist photo challenge is “Blue” what could be better.
 

Happy BC Day 🇨🇦

afternoon at the ballet

 

Yesterday afternoon the ballet came to the studio. Inspired after watching the sublime Tiler Peck, principal dancer with the New York City Ballet, in Ballet 422 on Netflix. Watch this great ballet documentary and be inspired by her too.
