The Snow Queen
Looks like Lady Winter has arrived early this year in Vancouver.
My drawing is inspired by the story The Snow Queen from Hans Christian Andersen.
The swirls in the image are inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s painting Starry Night.
It’s beautiful outside. Below is a photo from of our local trails.
Remembering Those Snowy Sunsets
The Mesmerizing 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.
Sledding Full Speed Ahead !!!
Jade’s starting to love winter activities.
She’s especially loving her sled lately !!!
The Goofy Reindeer
One of the reindeers was feeling sick — and Goofy is ready to fill in (haha).
Christmas Center of Attention
Three is such a wonderful age and Jade has been fascinated by our Christmas tree.
Our family stares at the lights for hours and we talk about the all different ornaments.
There are a few gifts under the tree and Jade likes guessing what they are.
It’ll be so fun around the tree and finally unwrapping our presents.
Candy Cane On The Brain
Jade’s perfected the art of eating a candy cane.
We both ate candy canes together and we talked about the cool peppermint taste.
Surprisingly, she’s very patient and savours it.
And she looooves crunching the last skinny parts.
Happiness Is Making A Snowman
Vancouver had a massive snow fall last night!
And new snow is PERFECT for making a snowman.
Today was super fun! Jade and our neighbour helped make a snowman.
We then added a carrot nose … the final touch!
Snowflakes, Big Flakes, we all scream for Snowflakes !!! * * *
In Vancouver, people either scream with delight or frustration over the first snowfall.
Thankfully, there wasn’t much trouble in our area.
Drawing with Icing + Candy
I think our family has a new Christmas tradition!
Jade and I hammered on the icing and candy. Yum!!!
Our drawings have never tasted sooooo good !!!
