Orange Beauty Fluttering By


Considering how important pollinating insects are to our world, it’s sad that we don’t often get to catch a glimpse of more than one butterfly at a time. If you live in a city, a butterfly like this one is a rare treat.

Do butterfly sightings make your day?

The Gray Inukshuk

Inukshuk Sculpture, Nanaimo

In some parts of the world, the ocean is never a beautiful aqua blue. In fact, sometimes it’s downright dingy. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful anyway.

And what better backdrop for a rock sculpture than moody gray?

Aqua Seafoam

Handmade in Tropical Aqua Blue

Tropical blue is a wonderful mood enhancing color. If only it would jump off the page and wash right over you.

Can you imagine the warm sand, the salty air, and the gentle sounds of the surf?

Little Brown Hare

Brown Hare

We all know that chocolate milk does not come from brown cows, and Easter eggs don’t come from bunnies.

But if they did, wouldn’t it make more sense if chocolate eggs came from brown hares? Then white rabbits would probably lay malted eggs.

So where do jelly beans come from?

Happy Easter!

Paint It Black

Black Roses

Why is it that we name things based on color, but get the color completely wrong? Most things that are called ‘black’ are actually something completely different. Can you imagine if black roses really looked like this?

Is there anything in nature that you would love to paint black?
