Found this little guy under some dying pansies in a flowerpot. I've never seen anything like this. Not native here, must have come in from coastal greenhouse. I think it's a Grove snail...takes three years to mature. If anyone has info please send! #grovesnail#garden#flowerpot#snail#yellow#striped#mollusca#discovery#tinytreasure

One of my favorite animals. Red Pandas at the Calgary Zoo in Alberta. Amazing color. #redpanda#calgaryzoo#shade#shelter#mammal#bamboo#furry#ontheroof

Underside of a giant lily pad at the botanical pavilion Calgary zoo. Beautiful structure. #botanical#lilypad#underneath#reveal#grid#reflection#structure#calgaryzoo#stem#flipside

Intense lily pollen and heady fragrance! So thankful I don't have allergies! #pollen#lily#bloom#flowers#stamen#orange#plantlife#petals#center

Watering the yard early this morning I found this beautiful lily I was going to plant, but tucked against the post, as I had forgotten it. What a gorgeous surprise to find it in full bloom. It's now inside because the fragrance is incredible! #lily#flowers#fragrance#pleasantsurprize#whitepetals#symmetry#bloom#simplejoys

Studio visit today with #CandaceMackowichuk from @sunprintstudio while she works hard producing lovely cyanotypes at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Edmonton Alberta. Such an interesting residency! The little ice-fishing tent is her mini darkroom with the top serving as drying surface, and the mop? Just a nice blue coincidence! #sunprintstudio#cyanotype#blue#artist#residency#cemetary#MountPleasant#yeg#alberta#studio#photography#darkroom#CandaceMakowichuk

Don't let the exterior fool you, yummy food inside! Delicious lunch with my good friend Candace @sunprintstudio #thaifood#syphayrestaurant#lao#padpedmee#frontdoor#charm#cuisine#yeg

Tiny fish that took the bait, soon to return to the cool deep water of a lake tucked away in a forest in North Central BC. Felt like summer # fish#lake#BC#forest#drip#SummitLake#sunshine#waves#fin

Digging up these old goodies from the basement. Ironic that I just got a record player and now they will be used for staging the room that used to be my studio. Eclectic mix! #record#album#vintage#music#eclectic#languageofthesoul#nostalgia

Wake up! This little guy packs some serious lungs. Listen close and you can hear the red winged blackbird near the pond. Tonic for the soul. #dawn#robin##birdsong#nofilter#alarmclock#newday

Going through antique magazines while packing. Found this gem #modernart#crazy#BrighterHomes#1928#antique#magazine#Glidden

Detail, work in progress, soon to be crated while moving into small temporary studio space #wip#detail#acrylic#oil#painting#Canadianartist#YEG#arctictern#bird#grisaille#partsofpaintings
