How wonderful it would be with the dire news of the world
coming from Ukraine, and so many other places undergoing
violence, to escape the news for awhile and get to draw on a
Tuesday night with my art group.
I walk by this painting in our middle bedroom every day.
It is a painting I did in the 1 - 1 1/2 hours I used to spend
drawing from a live model with my art group. And
clearly the model was excellent, because I like the painting,
and feel happy every time I see it. Of course COVID ended
all live gatherings, and so far they haven't started our art
Yes, if you want it, you can call me if you're in Toronto,
and we can arrange a price, and delivery. But my point
is that it was so wonderful to see amazing artists, to
work together and be inspired by the model and each
other. That day will come again and I can't wait. But I will.
Meanwhile please stay safe, and stay careful.
Have an enjoying your memories day.
