Happy Earth Day 2014!!

Lake Ontario - April 2014

Lake Ontario – April 2014

Spring has sprung, the sun is shining, the trees are in bud and flowers are starting to bloom.  It’s a beautiful time of year and with Earth Day upon us it’s a wonderful time to get outdoors and celebrate this beautiful planet that we live on.

This photo was taken the other day in the late afternoon as I was enjoying a walk by the Lake.  The Lake and the sky seemed to be glowing with a beautiful blue colour and the bright green head of the Mallard Duck was so vibrant!  He was swimming by pretty quickly but I was lucky to catch him before he sailed on by.

My biggest inspiration for painting is Nature and the beauty that surrounds us everyday and I am so grateful for that.

I hope that you get a chance to get out there and enjoy a little of the Earth’s beauty today too!
