More from the iPad

Clouds over the water

Two years ago I was getting ready to be part of the Water
for Life exhibition at the Niagara Falls History Museum,
curated by Antoine Gaber, and Angelina Herrera.  I did
one of my biggest works for that show - a clouds over
the ocean scene called Cloud Magic.  Today's iPad
drawing is on that theme. This is one of my favourite subjects
because in Nova Scotia where we go every summer, those
 scenes are beyond magic.

Today Steven took me out to our favourite park by Lake
Ontario.  It was not at all crowded and we fed the ducks,
and the Swan who loves Steven.  When we first saw the swan
another couple was feeding him, and of course we stayed
far away (social distancing).  But what was funny was that
a cat from the nearby neighbourhood had wandered into the
park and was going right up to the swan who was hissing in the
cat's face, but didn't hurt the cat. The cat backed up a bit,
and the swan kept eating the treats the couple was feeding

Watching the water and the play of nature was perfect for us.
It cheered us up to face the rest of the day feeling like we'd
had a treat.

Have a doing what you love day.
