This year’s nature art collection is dedicated to the forests of our beloved Earth. The bounty of the forest is found in its intrinsic beauty and wild mystery – a trove of treasures awaiting an eager explorer’s discovery.
Each elemental rhythm aligns and collaborates to create the living community; an interdependent web of relationships forming the Gaian organs.
These are the Gifts of the Groves
This sixth-annual, artistic tribute features:
- Fifteen high-resolution photographs of Skye’s 2019 creative collaborations with Nature and Space
- Features ancient forests near Victoria, BC, and many wild locations on Vancouver Island, and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains
- Coloured, calendar grids with annual holidays, moon cycles, and eclipses for each month of 2020
- Inspirational thoughts and stories each month, written by Skye, to engage the heart and expand the mind
- Digital photos from both versions of the calendar (Earth and Cosmic – details below), with a behind-the-scene story for each month emailed to your inbox throughout the year
- 10% of proceeds are being donated to the Ancient Forest Alliance – Working to protect BC’s endangered old-growth forests and ensure a sustainable, second-growth forest industry.
You can find the full collection of last year’s calendar here at this link
There are two versions available to choose from:
- Straight-Up Earth (raw nature art photos)
- Cosmic Edition (nature art blended with space photography)
Samples from the same month are shown to compare each version. The “Straight Up Earth” is the one on the right and the “Cosmic Edition” is the one below on the left.
You can find sample photos from each version here in my Imgur gallery
There are three reciprocation choices for the calendars:
1. Kick Back – One calendar for $20 or two for $30
2. Around the Corner – $25 – you get one and I gift one to someone who cannot afford it.
3. Gift – we all have times when our money is needed elsewhere. If this is the case for you, let me know and I can send you one around the corner. Last year, 80 people received a gifted calendar thanks to the generosity of others around the corner.
*Note – Please add $3 for shipping in Canada (if needed outside of Calgary) or $7 for US shipping.
You can contact me here to request your order, or just send an etransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your requested versions, quantities, and your email so I can contact you for follow up.

Just as a tree can only thrive with the support of the forest, I too am only able to share these fruits due to the support of my mission by people like you. And for your generous reciprocations, I thank you. May my art serve as a reminder of the beauty of the wild, the potential of co-creating with nature, and the healing power of a curiosity for the unknown. May the photos speak to the love in your heart and inspire you to interact with the wilds of nature.
— with gratitude, Skye
