Slow dancing with spring

Happy Morning in Port Philip

Thank goodness for my friends out there, and here
in Toronto, who keep me on track on positive
thinking.  It is the secret to life. Stay happy,
and whenever possible move on. If the negative
insists on being in your path, cross the street.

I am also indebted to Stephen Colbert and Jimmy
Fallon, whose humour frames the strange changes
the world is going through in an easier to take light.  

I did this iPad drawing the other day, and it was waiting
for me tonight when I came home from teaching my
evening class.  No time for painting today. I love the
pure, glorious colour that bounces out of my old iPad,
and begs me to upgrade to the latest iPad with the fancy
pencil, so I can have even more fun with this
drawing habit.  I do keep thinking of the amazing
show of Hockney's iPad drawings I saw in a gallery
in New York a couple of years ago.  Mind blowing.
Hockney is one of my art gods.  At the time there
was a Degas show on at the MoMA and it was
fascinating how both artists pieced together paper
to make larger images.

Have an all ready for spring day.
