Today was Family Day in Ontario, our province in
Canada.  I've got to admit it's one of my favourite
holidays, because all you do is hang out with family.
Yesterday we had my older son's daughter over for
dinner, and saw my daughter in-law, son and the
baby on the pick up.

Today we went to our favourite park on Lake Ontario
with our youngest and his girlfriend.  A lot of family,
and all of it fun.  Thank you to the government for inventing
that day -- a great mid-winter break.

I love this painting, and the family it depicts.
The parents' love story was wonderful, and the
whole family was a treat to paint.  Endless reference
photos, Skype calls, discussions and three paintings
-- a series -- as a result.  I love all of them.  The family
purchased this one.

Have a loving your family day.
