Happy Mother's Day in virus land

(This seems like the perfect painting
for today -- because everyone is
working from home, and trying
to balance parenting and
work.  Plus the painting was finished
for a show that opened
the week before my wonderful
mother died. )
It was a very happy Mother's Day, but boy does this painting
ever make me long for the days when I could hug my family.
I got to see my family today from a distance, and they very
kindly had take-out dinner delivered to us.  Thank you my sweet
family.  I love you.

I hope that wherever you live, and whatever your social
distancing restrictions, that you had a beautiful day.  It is
really cold here, yet we all weathered some time outside so
we could be together.

It makes me think so fondly of the days when we could
gather in a restaurant, and eat supper together.  I love my
family's sense of humour.  Humour is huge with everyone,
even the 10 month old baby -- Madeline, who laughed
away as her family talked to us from our front lawn.

Have a loving your family day.
