(This painting of Sam on
the left and Christopher on the
right -- with me in the middle
is one of my favourites. I do need a better
photo of the work.)

Today was Family Day in some provinces in Canada.  Ontario had the day
off.  At the moment we can't see our family without rapid tests.
But it seems the right day to show you some of the paintings I've done of
my family.

the model for this painting in
my Dance series)

My husband and children have been so supportive of my art,
and I am extremely lucky and grateful to have them.

family day was usually just a day to stay home and do nothing for us, which was fine since we were not at school lol

Hi Jennifer Rose,

We used to have our whole family over for dinner on Family Day weekend.
I miss that. It will happen again. This virus will go away. Right?


Jennifer Rose said...

prob not sadly, but hopefully we get better at understanding it

Barbara Muir said...

Jennifer Rose. I sure hope so. And yes I hope we get better
at understanding it, and teaching people to accept vaccines.
