A beauty from last year -- summer celebration

I finished this painting last January (2019) when we had  the rare treat
of a "snow day" and my Monday night class was cancelled.  This doesn't 
happen often in Toronto.  Right now we've as close to no snow as possible 
in January, and the month is over tomorrow.  I love this painting for how well it 
expresses my total happiness driving by summer fields on our way to
Nova Scotia in the Maritimes.  

And of course clouds have been my passion for years.  This month I've
been working almost full time on an ink drawing on canvas -- a portrait of 
my best supporter.  I will definitely be able to show you soon, because it 
goes into the Figure Drawing show opening at the Heliconian
Club at 35 Hazelton Avenue on Saturday, February 8 between 1 and 4. 
 I will be there, and would love it if you came out to see this drawing on canvas. 

I've learned a lot working on this.  More on that later.  Meanwhile if you
could use some summer fields plus clouds in your life, contact me.

Have a loving what you see day
