Last Sunday we went away for two nights to Ucluelet/Tofino. I think it's just soo important to make time for one another, especially for people likes ourselves who work full-time jobs on top of 20-30 hrs per week (in off season) for our photo/video business, it can be hard to remove yourself from business mode and just spend time together. This year I've made a goal to try to spend more time together out of work mode together, doing things like watching a favourite show together, Sunday morning brunch dates, brewery dates, going on adventures like this.

One of my big goals for 2018 is to really flex my creative muscle in my off season. I've filled my books for February with 12 photoshoots on top of working my full-time job! This is going to be such a busy, exciting, and creative month. So excited for all the engagement, couples and portrait sessions I'll be doing.

No matter how busy I am I try to find time to get outside whenever I can. The break in the storm gave me a perfect opportunity! #stormyday #bcstorm #temporarybliss #bluesky #clouds #cloudporn #winter #january #pittmeadows #pittmeadowsdyke #trail #explorepittmeadows #explorebc #pittmeadowexplorer #canada150 #sunday #weekend

📷 #moo#moodsofmtbaker @cookymatty . Often some very magical things happen behind the scenes, such as this case. While a very beautiful sunset was happening, which can be the main focus for most people, off to the East this scene was unfolding. I was so taken aback by the stunning hues of pink and last bits of light catching off Mt. Baker way in the background. It was just as magical as the sun setting in the West. Remember every great act needs a strong supporting cast.” . . . Back to regular posting for a day or two and then it will be time to start on The Round 3 Consideration List. . This photo is a special one - I had planned to repost it but somehow it slipped thru the cracks. When I was working on my consideration list #2 I kept looking for it & couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t find it. I realized my error and so am posting now. I have included it in round 2 that’s for sure. This view and mood, in one of my favorite places, Pitt Meadows, moved me deeply & when that happens I want to paint. Amazing shot Matthew and your comments made it all the better. ----------------------------------------⠀⠀ My acrylic landscape series, 36 Moods of Mt Baker is inspired by Japanese artist Hokusai's 36 Views of Mt Fuji with a twist. All of my paintings will be chosen from photos or those on Instagram that I find inspiring. There a lot of photos that I'm considering. Not all that I feature here will make it into the series. . Once I decide I would like to interpret a particular photo and have it as part of the series I contact the photographer to ask their permission. My goal is a group art show where each photographer and their work is presented alongside my interpretation. . Please tag photos you'd like me to consider for my series with the hashtag #moodsofmtbaker To see my other art please follow me @susanlgreigart⠀

It was one of those times when I left work and it was wet, rainy and windy. I was sorely tempted to get in my car and head home. But I have learned the truth that there is never the perfect time for getting outside for my walks and hikes. And going anyway despite imperfect conditions often allows me to see things that I might miss otherwise. Once I arrived on the dykes tonight, the rain stopped, the wind quieted and air felt quite warm. My walk was beautiful and everything I needed. Had I not gone despite my misgivings I would have missed out on the beautiful evening, the fresh smell of the poplar trees and the time to restore my soul.

The end of a very long day filled with must do's and after a final errand I knew I had to get away. I needed quiet and beauty and movement. I was too late for sunset but a fifteen minute walk under this beautiful moon tonight was amazing. The air was warm, I breathed deeply, and my soul feels restored. Tomorrow is another busy day but I will be better for having been here. #happyplace #pittmeadows #yvr #womenwhohike #over40andfit #dailywalk #moonrise #evenimg #aftersunset #shecanadventure #womenwhoexplore #beautifulbc #explorebc #tricities #all#allouetteriver #allouette #pittmeadowsdyke

📷@susanlgreigart How can you not love the variety of blues and greens that nature creates? The perfect day for another walk in #pittmeadows along the dykes. Soaking up inspiration for painting.
