Art and Positive Thinking

Welcome to my Renee Loves Art blog!

My focus is exploring, creating and reflecting upon the positives of life and connecting them to my art whether it be photography, pen and ink drawings, watercolour paintings, mixed media, digital media or any other possible media I dive into!

I hope you join me on my art adventure!

Positively Western

Canada Day was a positively western experience!  We ventured through the early morning rain to Cypress Hills to see the Elkwater Rodeo.  It was the first time in several years that it hadn't been cancelled because of rain.  By the time we arrived, a rainbow graced the sky and the sun was shining.  There were so many beautiful patterns and colours throughout the day.  The hills were deep green.  The cowboy and cowgirl shirts were bold colours of blue, purple, orange and green.  The straw cowboy hats were tall, round, wide and brimmed with multicolored beads.  The horse blankets were geometric and complemented the horses' coats.  The clouds were whispy like the tails of the horses aned danced like the spinning ropes.  The hillsides were abloom with wild roses, geraniums and yarrow, as the butterflies flitted about. A positive western experience enhanced my Canada Day!
