One of my favorite places is Buntzen Lake, B.C. Not only is it geographically beautiful, there is an awesome dog park right on the water. My wife and I are easily entertained, bringing our little fur ball there to play with the many other dogs. Right now the lake has been flooded by the hydro plant. On Saturday, I saw this young kid, maybe 12 or 13 years old, climbing around on this partially submerged picnic table. The uninhibited display of calm yet playful interaction struck me. I was able to get down a quick pencil sketch, which I took home and used to create my latest watercolour painting. Good times.
