The Story behind my drawing:⠀
Some people walk by and see a mass of rocks and stones. Me? I see forms, shapes, angles and rugged beauty. And, when I see an Inuksuk standing among all this, I feel like I somehow won the lottery. Like I found a hidden gem. I want to photograph it, draw it, take it all in - in case it isn't there tomorrow. Contrasting the thoughtful sculpted statue with the scattered, accidental rocks is inspiring. To make sure I get it right, I walk on the rocks, touch their surface with my hands, step back to take it all in, and bend down to get a closer look. I love this scene. I know that it won't look the same the next time I visit Vancouver. But for now this drawing is enough to remind me of this place and these assorted rocks and stones.⠀
⠀
My connection to #Vancouver or what Vancouver evokes to me:⠀
Vancouver is a contrast in big city excitement and natural beauty. As a prairie girl I am drawn to the west coast and look forward to my visits there.⠀
