Realities of Raincouver

Raincouver

In Vancouver it rains … a lot … and then some.

Rain gear is essential.

Vancouver’s #1 rule; always have an umbrella.

And if you have a 3 year old — don’t  forget the rubber boots!

Jade’s Home and Workspace

Jade's Workspace / 1

Our family almost always paints or draws at our kitchen table.

We’ve thought long and hard about how to best integrate our family’s art space and material.

Firstly, we wanted to incorporate Jade’s art into the work space.

We also wanted our art resources / materials to be easily accessible.

For a final touch, we envisioned Jade’s paintings in our living room.

Last month, we went to Ikea and purchased some Expedit bookshelves.

For us, it’s a perfect space solution.

Today, I put up Jade’s art in our living / working area (pics below).

Chalk Art Winter Wonder Land

As a prairie boy growing up, it’s still strange not having snow in December.

Jade and I collaborated to paint a wizard at StrongStart.

My daughter dabbled the yellow stars.

The school has a fun dress up area with a great wizard hat.

Jade’s favourite scene from the book “Little Bear’s Visit.”

This is from the section called the “Goblin Story”.

I love Maurice Sendak’s illustrations in it!
