I started this flower painting a few days ago to celebrate the lovely fall
anemones still going strong in our garden. The painting is going fairly
slowly, but I think I’m almost there.

The American news right now has been dominating our lives. And that
along with marking for the one night course I teach has distracted me
somewhat. How about you?

I like how the painting's developing. I like the light So more to come. Despite the
very bad examples some world leaders are giving on how to behave with Corona,
please don’t follow their lead. Please wear a mask, please social distance, and stay

We are trying to figure out how we will do our Canadian Thanksgiving dinner this
weekend.  I said to Steven, "we’ve handled far worse things than this in our time
together, so I think we can figure something out." If you're Canadian and living in
a zone where COVID-19 cases are spiking, what have you figured out about family
get togethers?

Have a lovely week.  And enjoy the flowers where you are.
