Photographed 7 July 2014, near Hanna, Alberta.

Even though canola fields in bloom are a common sight on the Prairies at this time of year, there’s no way I could ever grow tired of those brilliant swaths of yellow. I once had a summer job at the museum in Fort St. John, British Columbia, where I learned to work the till in the gift shop. With our location on the Alaska Highway, we were a popular spot for tourists to drop in for maps and other information, and I remember that the postcard I sold the most copies of featured a canola field under a stormy grey sky. “What are those beautiful yellow flowers?” was the third most popular question, behind “Do bears eat people?” and “Where is the washroom?”     🙂

Moon will bring high tides and heightened emotions.”

Window shopping looking at art

Came across a Van Gogh

“Sunflowers on Gold”

The painting brightened up a cloudy day

I was sitting in a park on a pond bank

A fresh piece of canvas

On which to paint

A memory of a beautiful day

Bright yet dark in a beautiful way

Inspired the painting I painted today

Bright and sunny on a dark red

Beautiful flowers I saw inside my head

Bright yet dark in a beautiful way

I wanted to share a poem a piece of art and a bit of my heart. I love art in all it’s shapes and forms, as I grow older I find a greater appreciation of art. I suppose it is another flower as I rushed though life I didn’t…
