Here's another of the three paintings that actually fly out
to New York today. Randir at UPS is the kindest art
packer you ever want to meet, and I was delighted on
Saturday when I took the paintings in and he said they
were beautiful. We paint in isolation and frequently at
a high intensity. To have someone confirm that what
we're doing is good is always a sweet pleasure.
As it was the weekend was so packed with work that there
was no time for the joyous Easter folly we usually have
with our children. In fact it's the first year ever that we
haven't had any Easter celebration on the actual weekend.
Steven and I did share a pack of caramel filled bunnies
on the ride to Windsor, Ontario, to pick up Sam yesterday.
And the weather in Windsor, the southernmost point of
Canada, was balmy and beautiful. The forsythia and daffodils
were out and the magnolias starting to bloom. Steven
and I walked down to the waterfront with Zoey, our dog,
while Sam finished his packing. We were delighted to see
all the fantastic sculptures in the park by the water.
So the silly pictures of the giant baskets and Easter decorations
will come next weekend, and we will have all the fun
we normally have on that holiday. Yes of course Sam had some
chocolate eggs when we got home -- just not the turkey and
roast potatoes, and hundreds of chocolate eggs, and the hunt with his
brother and Megan, and the silly Easter stuffed toys that talk and dance.
All that has to wait.
Have a holidays-can-happen-any-day day.
