Happy end of January -- a wonderful month!

Today is throw back Thursday on some social media, and
that works fine for this little painting. I started it 10 years
ago, and worked on it on and off for this past month
between bigger work, and when I was not feeling well.

Surprisingly with a strange lung bug, and no answers from
doctors, I kept my promise to myself that 2019 would be
a very happy year.  And now I am better, I still feel this
way -- joyous -- in the face of so much that is not great
in the world.  If you are suffering either terrible cold, or
overwhelming heat right now due to climate change, I
feel for you.

My style 10 years ago was very different.  But when I
found the painting, at the back of a bookcase, I loved
the mood.  Every summer we visit Quebec city on our
way to Nova Scotia, and on our way back to Toronto.
We absolutely love the city.  It is magnificent, charming,
beloved by its citizens, filled with art, history, and one of the
oldest cities on the continent.

So this painting expresses the happiness I always feel when
I'm there.

Have a thinking of places you love day.
