Togetherness is where it’s at this evening
It’s lovely for me when I get to spend the afternoon with both of us doing some art and work and talking out some issues in our lives.
This time the afternoon turned into evening, (days are so short right now), and as the lights were turned on progressively, I felt pretty lucky to have C here right now and realised we’ve been at it for several hours and time just stood still.
C is in the middle of two important projects. She is designing a campaign for shark fining awareness, which she hopes to present all over her campus and garner support to stop that gruesome practice and also is part of a team of researchers gathering info for a report on sexting and the ramifications in Vancouver high schools.
C does big, bold designs and is brilliant at them. This will be the design for a T shirt to raise awareness. (I must get her to post some of these to her blog)
I’ve decided it’s time for a new map. I love my map series and haven’t painted a new one since late August. So for this map I’m focusing on the Nuthatch. Sweet little bird. I love the way he descends trees and branches head first. I’ve done some preliminary studies and think this is going to be two nuthatches, one on a branch and one flying to the branch.
The branch will follow a road right thru the centre of the map. I think the branch will touch the ground and there will be bluebells. Yes, I think there’ll be bluebells.
