today, but it feels done. It has more zip and punch than it
did the first time I showed it to you. The changes were small,
but made a huge difference.
Wishing you a super week, as we move into the full beauty
of spring. We were lucky today to see the last day of the Mickalene
Thomas: Femmes Noires show at the Art Gallery of Ontario and the
exhibition. Mickaline Thomas is prolific and powerful and uses unique
techniques like printing photographic collages onto mirrors. Her
work is huge and arresting. Both shows were amazing. My favourite
piece in the Impressionism show was a Degas painting of a woman
ironing that I'd never seen before. The light was magical.
It's been a wonderful day entertaining the youngest member
of our family, who is filled with life and ideas, and transforming
every minute. Her influence hits me both with a sweetness
that is heartwarming, and the inspiration that comes from watching
how hard the very young work at learning and changing every
day -- sometimes in every hour. A treat.
Have a making small changes and enjoying them day.
