A highly in demand painter throughout his career, Colville’s work can be found in gallery collections across the world including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Centre National d'Art et de Culture Georges Pompidou in Paris and the Art Gallery of Alberta!

Age gracefully with antioxidants: Start your anti-aging routine in your mid-twenties and consider it “age prevention.” Use powerful topical antioxidants like Resveratrol and Coenzyme Q10 daily under makeup and or at nighttime.

How does that saying go again, you get what you pay for? Ok but seriously are times really that tough right now that some roofing companies need to resort to using old drip cap instead of step flashing? They maybe saved themselves $30 or so, Is that really worth the risk of having to repair a ton of water damage? Roofing is based on layers, once water gets under one layer there is always another layer to catch it and keep it running down the roof and away. You always need to think if water gets in, I need to provide a way out. Step flashing is the only way to “layer” the flashing with the layers of the shingles overlapping one another in order to keep water out. In this instance once water gets in it has a wide open invitation to the inside of your house. There also was never any kickout flashing so you know water has been getting behind all of the siding. It just plain sucks!!! 🤦🏻♂️👎 #nothowyoudoit#thissucks#roofers#roofing#roof#flashing#siding#exteriors#exterior#lpsmartside#lpcanexel#canexel
Souvenir du fabuleux Lac Louise.
C’était il n’y a pas si longtemps, un peu plus d’un mois, ça me semble déjà loin et pourtant mes souvenirs et le sentiment que j’ai éprouvé sur place sont, quant à eux, bien au chaud dans ma tête. Le lac Louise, fait partie de ces emblèmes de l’Alberta, sa couleur, ses canoës sont devenus les stars d’Instagram. On m’avait dit que j’allais être déçue tant ce n’est pas si sauvage que l’on croirait, en effet un hôtel est placé juste devant le lac mais pourtant moi pendant ces quelques heures passées ici, je n’arrêtais pas de me dire « Bordel, j’y suis » ! C’est fou le sentiment que l’on éprouve devant l’endroit que l’on rêvait de voir depuis des années...Une espèce d’euphorie apaisée, quelque chose de contradictoire mais qui s’avère se répéter à chaque nouveau rêve réalisé...Ce lac, je l’ai admiré avant et quand je l’avais sous les yeux. C’était magique.
Et vous, quel est l’endroit que vous rêviez de voir et que vous avez vu, enfin ?! -
This place blew our minds last winter. A giant ice castle, entirely man made and built so beautifully that it looks like something straight out of a Disney movie set. This was the place that we kicked off our winter adventure into the Canadian Rockies and it only got even more epic from there 🔥@travelalberta#explorealberta
