Thank you for keeping me going

(the woman in this painting
has been one of my 
sustaining friends during
these long months. I
am grateful to her, and
to all of my friends.  Won't
it be wonderful when we
can send out invitations to
parties and events in real
life again?)

On this busy day it seems important to thank everyone who has helped me stay cheerful,
happy, excited about the future, and strong in the present moment. Thank you to my family
for being there, and caring, even though we mostly have to see one another at a distance.

Thank you to my friends here in my community who have called, visited at a distance,
and helped me in so many ways.

Thank you to my collectors, to the people I teach, to my wonderful college bosses, and to
everyone I’ve seen who has brightened my world over the past nine months. All of you make
my day every day, and I am beyond grateful.

Please stay safe and stay creative.
