In 2014 one of our family members spent a lot of time at Toronto Western
hospital. Whoever accompanied them would wander around the
neighbourhood while the examinations, or treatments were taking place.
We often visited La Rosa bakery in Kensington market for a coffee and
I don't think the bakery is still going. They would have to do strictly pick
up in Lockdown, and the opportunity to see any staff anywhere
without masks is gone. That's something I really look forward to -- seeing
people's faces. Lisa, the woman in the portrait, was so kind and funny. I
hope she is healthy and happy.
It will be wonderful when this pandemic is under control and we can see
such delightful expressions again.
Have an imagining a happy future day.
Barbara, what a beautiful portrait! Oh yes, is will be wonderful when we can see one another's faces again, definitely good our collective mental health.
Beautiful portrait❣️ I almost didn’t recognize an old friend yesterday because of the mask and the long time since I had seen her. Voices and eyes are the clues now. I also hope things change soon. 😔🤗❣️
Thanks so much. Won't it be great! I'm used to seeing people in masks now. I even
think people are getting to understand smiles that come through the eyes.
But wow -- the whole sweet face. Especially the faces of family and friends.
That will be amazing.
Love your work!
Thank you so much Evelyn,
I guess one of the things that's exciting about this time is how
creative we've been with carrying on. From a far distance in the grocery
store if I see the masked face of an employee who's been warm and kind
for years, we can smile and ask how we are. When friends walk by on the street
if we're sitting on our front porch 20 feet away, we can talk for a minute, and
feel happy that that minute happened.
Love your work. Your persistence has inspired me.
very happy looking portrait! 😀
She was a lovely person. I went to the bakery when I'd finished
the portrait, but she'd quit, and I didn't see her again.
