two more magical mornings

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.

Happy Monday

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.

Barcelona Beautiful

 

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that we have just returned from a truly memorable visit to the beautiful and historic city of Barcelona.

For my changingpalette followers here are some of our favourite moments, from Antoni Gaudi’s stunning Sagrada Familia cathedral, to his La Pedrera rooftop sculptures and his mosaics in Park Guell, to the glorious paintings of Joan Miro at the Fundacio Joan Miro in Parc de Montjuic, to dinner at the iconic 4Gats restaurant and before leaving the celebrations in the streets on Spain’s National holiday on October 12th.

As you watch the slideshow enjoy the guitar of Edgar Moffatt who treated us to his art as we waited in line for the opening of The Prado in Madrid. (Our Madrid visit to follow).

Canada Day weekend on spectacular Rathtrevor Beach, Parksville BC. 🇨🇦

Oh Canada

I hope your Canada Day was as special as ours.

How lucky we are to be living in the greatest country on earth.

Happy Canada Day 🇨🇦

heron today, maybe loon tomorrow

 

Oh, the joy of a Sunday afternoon walk in glorious Stanley Park, Vancouver.

all time favorites

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is sadly the last from The Daily Post and we have been asked to choose our all time favourites, an almost impossible task after five years of posting regularly to the challenges each week.

Those of you who follow thechangingpalette however shouldn’t be surprised that I would choose these photos from last August’s Photo Challenge: Corner of my beautiful granddaughter painting with me in my studio, on that day perhaps the happiest corner in all the world.
