red buildings & the sea

more of my favourite things - beautiful wooden buildings and a life by the sea ;-)


beautiful, beautiful, vibrant

one of my favourite spots on the big dock beside the Bluenose II / looking across the harbour to the golf course / a large ocean bouy near The Fisheries Museum located on Bluenose Drive /  Lunenburg selfie / from the end of that dock / the Bluenose II tusked in still, in her winter protective coat / a dreamy soft focus happy accident shot / fishing boats at the federal dock  on a recent sunshiny day / gorgeous wooden fishing shacks near where the Polar Prince is at dock / a new favourite tiny beach / Lunenburg you are so colourful, so beautiful, so vibrant /  a little wave - another shot from my favourite tiny beach on the edge of town

She created a life she loved

She being me ... of course this life of mine is continually a work in progress but I must say my new life lately in Lunenburg is magically good. Good in so many ways ! Great, wonderful, fantastic, exciting, stimulating ... beautiful, beautiful, vibrant.

I may not write much here anymore  ... but I promise to post photos often & follow me on Instagram for lots of daily photos of life, loves, art, Lunenburg & cats (of course ;-)

* my one little word for 2015 is create & I'm creating in every way I can imagine - happy, happy

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. 
Art is knowing which ones to keep. 
Scott Adams

& I would suggest - keep all your mistakes, all your practice pieces because sometimes they don't actually seem that great when you first create them. Save them all and look at them again sometime in the future ... they might just become art to you.
