Much to be thankful for on a beautiful day in Vancouver today.

the day after


 

Familiar to many of you, my favourite muse, Kitsilano Beach after yesterday’s snow.

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.

Happy Monday

Kitsilano in the snow #2, matted and framed

The evolution of this painting began a year ago after a heavy snowfall here in Vancouver, which I posted about in backdrop to a life: part 2. On January 8th it became my second painting of the year as you will have seen in my post second of the year.

Now, a year later and after my most recent post backdrop to a life revisited, it seemed time to get to work and put a mat and frame around it.

backdrop to a life revisited


 
A year ago almost to the day you may remember I posted backdrop to a life part 1 and part 2. This was in response to the Discover Challenge from the Daily Post: Finding Your Place, in which we are asked by Cheri to bring a place alive that means something to you.
 

 
Yesterday the snow returned to Vancouver and whilst not as heavy as last year my muse, Kitsilano Beach, became a winter wonderland once again.
 

 
Today the snow stopped, the sun shone and camera in hand how could I not venture out and capture it all.
 
      
 
      
 

Happy Holidays everyone.
