Cloud Magic is one of my favourite paintings. Two years ago
during a very hard winter -- I broke my left wrist -- I finished
this painting early in May for a wonderful show. Water for Life
Directed by Antoine Gaber, and curated by Angelina
Herrera opened in the Niagara Falls History Museum, at the
end of May in 2018.

What a treat that whole experience was.  I had such great times
with international artist friends from around the world.
The painting went on to be in two other shows.  It looks
glorious in a big space, and it captures the wonder
of a Maritime cloudscape over the ocean perfectly for me.

In this difficult  time I sometimes feel like I'm losing my courage,
and have to take a deep breath and remember the health workers -- they
have real courage. It still makes me happy to remember that I
painted the largest work I ever created -- with a broken wrist.

Have a loving your story day.
