The final final (I think)

We are heading out for the coast today, but
I'll keep in touch when I can. This is the final,
final, I'm pretty sure of my painting of the
beautiful Etana.  Beautiful, brainy, and
committed to helping the planet, through
her work with women, and her volunteer

The concerned, thoughtful expression on her face
inspired both her portrait, and the one
that followed of Emily.  People talk
about passing the baton.  These are two
women I would gladly see watching out
for our world.

Have a working-on-your-final-final day.

Thanks so much Sally,

We are in Mactaquac just outside of Fredericton, so almost there. It would be
good to see you here in the Maritimes, your home country. It's a long journey,
but a beautiful one, and I love it.

Wow, Barbara, this portrait has an otherworldly ethereal beauty to it! Mesmerising!
This ocean portrait series of yours is so beautifully thought out and executed.
I hope you enjoy your trip!
