Some days I prepare something beautiful to add to my sketchbook. Others I quickly paint over a dilapidated drawing on my tea mug (ex beer mug) or a tool I've carried with me across the world or just a boy or a dog. You know - little things that make every day.

On the of the hikes (not too far from the crowds of Lake Louise) I found these amazing moss- and lichen- covered rocks that looked like tiny worlds and spent quite a bit of time just looking and trying to find patterns, count how many times on the rock you see each living thing and if the four color theorem can be illustrated with them :)
Mountains. Water in all it's forms all around. Wild berries, amazing array of mostly green colors all around me. And mesmerizing turquoise of the lakes and rivers in Banff.
