Great weekend in Vancouver

This past weekend was all about exploring a city. Vancouver was the chosen destination, even though I’ve been there so many times. It was about good food, music, walks, absorbing the city vibe, conversation, etc. (Oh… and a lot of book work as well).

Susan and I also visited the Vancouver Art Gallery where we spent few hours. They had an exhibition of mainly paintings from the Golden Age of Dutch Art. Beautiful paintings. Since I love photography, I particularly enjoyed Andreas Gursky‘s and Anthony Hernandez‘s works. Of great note was Jack Shadbolt‘s paintings as well. The gallery room with two of his larger pieces was a great moment in our tour of the museum. Finally, the “Ought Apartment” was such a wonderful installation… a vertical timeline of interior design and styles throughout the decades.

It was great seeing my sweet friend Colette and her boyfriend Brian on Sunday. It’s always soooo great seeing and talking to Coco!
