Yesterday Jen Cloutier came to visit my studio and interview me for a project she has been working on, documenting the lives and studio practices of artists in Cuba and Canada. It's called "The Process"; you can read about it here.
Near the end of our visit, she graciously sat for not one but two quick portraits, lucky me!

As I was photographing those portraits this morning, I noticed a bee sitting very still on the deck. Aren't the shadows of its wings just beautiful? The flower shadows too.
Sometimes I write in my sketchbooks
Sometimes I paint in my studio
And sometimes I am in the right place at the right time to notice something beautiful.
