Colourful Handy Bandies

Having fun overlapping colours and lines. They kind of look like rubber bands.

Painting Quirky Colour Lines

Quirky Colour Lines

Sometimes Jade likes to make different brush marks all over the page.

I love this approach — especially when she uses different colours.

It’s always interesting to photograph different sections. Below are some examples:

Sending My Love via Air Mail

Sending My Love via Air Mail

A fun day creating with Jade.

We cut some great old printed material and added doodle lines.

I’m always a sucker for stamps and cancellation artwork.

Remembering Those Snowy Sunsets

Snowy Sunsets

I grew up on the Canadian prairies and we played in the snow all day.

But, I especially loved walking outside when the sun was going down.

Sometimes, the snow-drifts would catch some amazing colours .

Singing Happy Songs

A fun, happy drawing from my 3 year old daughter Jade.

We sing, play, and dance whenever we can.

Her happiness is truly contagious!

I just love her!

Jade's Cool Doodle

Jade named and drew this fun doodle.

This guy lives in the city and likes to make toys.

He likes to eat purple and pink jelly beans.

Emitting Joy & Love

Christmas Star

“Love came down at Christmas; love all lovely, love divine; love was born at Christmas, stars and angels gave the sign.”

The image is a visual response to an engaging post:

The Animated GIF: The Antithesis of Mindfulness

Personally, I love rich visual imagery … It’s the way I think and communicate.

For me, the best Art has ambiguity. I like having the time and silence to appreciate and question.

But now, EVERYDAY feels like an animated gif. The average person is exposed to 3,500 advertising messages a day. We devour images, resources and ideas.

And along the way, maybe we’re debasing and dehumanizing ourselves?

Naturally Curly Hair

Natural Curly Hair

I used to have a lot … now … not so much.

My wife is Asian and has long, beautiful straight hair.

The question is still out there … Will Jade keep her curls?

Jade is over 3 and she hasn’t had her hair cut yet.

My wife doesn’t want to part with those cute baby curls (photo below).

Baby Curls

Personally, I think Jade will keep some wave.

If her hair dries naturally, the curl will come out.

Otherwise, the blow drier will flatten it out.

My wife doesn’t believe me. But then again, she never does (haha).
