FIFA match at Commonwealth Stadium

I attended this FIFA Women's match between Japan and Canada thinking that the event would be a bit of a gold mine for sketching opportunities, but it turned out to be way colder than I anticipated and hence only one rushed sketch during halftime.

withered sunflowers

The sunflowers we bought during the Thanksgiving weekend have quickly withered, but they do not lose their beauty or appeal... today is like having a drink with some old friends.

River Valley cycling

Another morning cycling around the River Valley... a sketch from the footbridge across the North Saskatchewan River facing north towards the CN Rail and Yellowhead bridges. The warm autumn season continues...

Astotin Lake, Elk Island National Park

Sketches from a short trip to Elk Island National Park on Thanksgiving Day; another beautiful autumn day with some golden yellow still remaining. I have only visited in the winter when Astotin Lake, shown here, was solid ice, so it was a wonderful opportunity to experience the landscape (and a few herds of bison) in a completely different light. We are so fortunate to have this park so close by.
