Yesterday my husband and I spent our day in the mountains delivering artwork, visiting galleries and walking along the river. There is something so rejuvenating about breathing that fresh autumn air. I love that the streets in Banff are named after the wild animals that frequent the area as the town I grew up in did the same, though the names were Cree. I lived on Nisku Bay, Cree for goose,
A visit to the mountains is always a balm for my soul. A time to absorb nature, colours, and in turn inspire new ideas. I like to sketch and take photos whenever we are in there and my mind whirls with so much creativity. It was great to see several canoes and kayaks still out and about in this beautiful weather and I can't wait to get back into the studio to paint once again.
