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 Proud!

My son was invited to try out for the Southern Alberta Bantam Football team in Calgary on the weekend.  The weather was miserable, but it did give me the opportunity to sit in my warm vehicle to warm up and doodle instead freezing in the McMahon Stadium in the wet snow and wind.

My son was moved to a position he had never played before, so his chances of making the team changed.  He enjoyed learning the new position and meeting new players from all over, and showed a positive attitude and gratitude for all people who helped him on the weekend.  He was also pleased to play where the CFL Calgary Stampeders play!

Where the Pros Play

So far, he hasn't made the team, but is grateful for the opportunity to tryout!  What a great attitude!  We are positively proud of him!


  1. Congrats to your son for having the opportunity and being so positive with it! Those poor kids must have FROZE!!!!

  2. Thanks, Terri. He never complained about being cold even once...but maybe they were trying to be tough Canadians?


Thanks for leaving specific comments, they warm my Canadian heArt!
