A happy life together
week and a half ago I watched this lovely couple get
married. This little portrait is just my response to a
photo I took at the end of the wedding reception. I
was leaving and saying goodbye to the bride and
groom, when I realized I'd love a picture, so they
It's still not quite finished, as I'm spending quite a bit
of time working on other paintings. But I certainly
do wish this sweet pair a happy life together. I have
been lucky to enjoy a long and happy marriage.
Blessed as I have been, I think almost anything you
can say about love and happiness will be true for
someone. And many people are perfectly content
living alone, with or without a cat.
It has been an exquisite day in Toronto. The weather
is warm with a breeze, the sky a pure, end of summer

we are innately happy, and have to work very hard to
be miserable. I think in Toronto today being miserable
would have required a supreme effort. People
all over the city were wowed by the weather and happy
as could be.
Have an -you-know-what-I'm-happy day.
