Jade says her funny doodles are “rascals” and friends.

Their friendship is based on “joking around” and smiles.

I asked for “Pressed Pants” not “Plants” !!!

Pressed Plants / Drawing

All joking aside, Jade and I had a blast at StrongStart yesterday.

StrongStart is a FREE early education program in BC, Canada.

The top drawing is a fun doodle from our pressed plants (shown below).

Jade really loved being in the trails and picking leaves and flowers.

And I really liked drawing from our exploration.

This exercise helped me focus on unique details and shapes of our local plants.

Rocking Snails

Rocking Snails

Early this morning, I saw an amazing snail during my walk.

When I arrived home, I told Jade all about it.

Instantly, she wanted to draw the snail with a bunch of friends.

The Mesmerizing Northern Lights

Northern Lights

A hint of Arctic air.

It was chilly in Vancouver today.

I was telling Jade about the beauty of the Northern Lights.

I grew up in the Canadian prairies and we’d see them often.

The Northern Lights dance, glow and shimmer across the dark sky.

The Canadian winter brings many moments of creative beauty.

Yesterday, during a family walk, I photographed some ice.

Always appreciate the simple beauty around you.

New Discovery — Galapagos Birds and Toilet Rolls

Bird Toilet Paper Rolls

Little known fact …

These are the famous Toilet Roll Galapagos Birds (image above).

Darwin originally linked the evolution of birds with common toilet rolls.

My wife presented and unearthed this startling, new discovery today!

Remember, DON’T throw away your old toilet paper rolls.

Give them the love, care and creativity to evolve into a beautiful bird.

Make Like A Tree and “Leaf”

Make Like A Tree And Leaf

Almost all the leaves are gone … but this old guy refuses to “leaf”.

Recently, the weather has been amazing and we’ve had some amazing family-walks.
