it's a colourful life…

Before I started my home decor business, I used to spend hours in my kitchen, painting canvases. I would lose myself in the sheer joy of creating art. As can happen in life, I stopped making time for my “hobby” and started focusing on my business. That was three years ago, and since then, I haven’t touched my box of paints. All that changed today! I dusted of my brushes and headed to my friend’s art studio for a day of creativity.

Patty Ripley is a talented artist with years of experience and a collection of works that takes my breath away. I’m always delighted when she completes a new painting! Her natural ability to mix colours is unmatched in my opinion, and I jumped at the chance when she offered to tutor me in colour mixing.

It’s so good to play again! Patty and I are meeting regularly for creativity days of painting and photography!

my new happy place…

I know I shouldn’t, but I just can’t help being drawn in by magical delis that actually whisper in my ear, “You won’t regret it!” This in my new happy place in Vancouver. Pane Formaggio is a haven of scrumptiousness  smack dab on 10th Avenue (I can hear all my Vancouver pals saying “duh!”).

My girlfriend, Patty Ripley, and I shared an amazing sandwich and we both picked up some of the delicious Applewood Smoked Cheddar. The pastries were calling my name…

I picked up some of their “Old Village” chutney and I’m marinating a pork roast in it for tomorrow’s dinner….yum!!!

I’ll be visiting again for a taste of the Artisan Gelato!!!
