A year ago today? — New York City!

So much can happen in a year. We all share that realization in 2020.  Last year
at this time I getting ready to attend my opening at the Amsterdam Whitney
Gallery in New York City on December 12. I’d never been to New York in the 
holiday season and the place was magical. There were lights everywhere, on
all the trees on some streets -- huge beautiful trees filled with lights.

This painting sold in New York. The show continued into 2020, and it sold in
January. I love the painting, which is about the feeling at our favourite park
here on the west end of Toronto. And I loved the whole experience exhibiting
in New York, at this time of year. I can’t imagine anywhere in the world
where it would be more festive at Christmas than in New York.

Of course this year is a whole different thing -- but I just heard that the gallery
I show with is planning to move to a larger space. My thanks as always
to Ruthie Tucker, the owner and director of the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery.

Have an enjoying your happy memories, and plans for the future day.
