(This drawing was in preparation for
a painting in the same pose.
I really like the drawing. )This past month I feel I've been blessed with wonderful
experiences. My gallery in New York treated me like
art royalty, giving me a beautiful wall for my work, and
glowing praise during the opening. Plus the city itself,
as I've shown you in a couple of videos, was miraculous.
Here at home in Toronto we've had parties with friends
and two family dinners so far. Yet I am also aware that
some of my friends, and family are going through very
hard times, with loss and grief, that in some ways is even
harder to deal with in a season so packed with memories.
I wish for everyone celebrating the joy of the season,
like Elizabeth Gilbert did the other day, and also as Gilbert
did I wish for everyone going through hard times the comfort
of those who love them.
Have a caring for others day.
