I've explored this idea of a pensive polar bear and his reflection before, but my daughter's post card for the day (below) had me thinking along similar lines again.
Another post that includes one of my daughter's excellent Father's Day cards :) In this case, she painted a quite fashionable lady bear -- note the scientifically accurate thinner neck in addition to the fabulous dress -- so I decided to create a paper dance partner! Pretty cool to have these cards already in hand to make my own inspirations even easier. And the beat goes on...

For Father's Day, my awesome daughter gave me five polar bear post cards to send to the President this week :) Even better, she made them all as she patiently sat through an entire day of school visit presentations last Thursday! She thought that I might need a little help after a busy week -- and she was right that I got a little behind!!! But now that I'm back on track, President Obama will just get double the reminders to protect Alaska's coastal plain. Thanks so much kiddo. Love you!
Last weekend in Seattle, my daughter and I watched the Brooks PR Invitational -- a elite high school track meet with some of the best high school runners in the country. Great stuff and a very nice precursor to Father's Day :) No steeplechase at the meet, but with it would be an event well suited to the polar bear when the icepack breaks up.
Spending a few days in Seattle after my last school visits of the year. Making cards on the road is a bit of a challenge, but here is one from after yesterday's cruise around the emerald city!
The west-bound trips through the North Cascades National Park are always sweet...
And just a few more shots of a drawing workshop underway - where my facial expressions can sometimes get a little animated :)
The world is at times a puzzling place... But it is also good, and real, and colorful, and varied. Many pieces together. Interlocking. Patterned. Reliant on the whole for strength and unity.
