A Happy Saturday

 It was a hot one here in Toronto today. Steven and I continued our anniversary
 weekend celebrations. We went to the market to see the farmer who sells wonderful
 lettuce, quiche, eggs and delicious pastries for Steven.

Because it was hot we went for a walk in the mall (masked). We haven’t even been
to a mall more than a couple of times in the past year. It was a shock and also fun to
see all the artistic decorations in the stores used to try and sell us stuff. COVID has
made being a consumer seem frivolous. 

And I painted this happy acrylic ink painting based on a memory from Nova Scotia.
I love the sight of waves, and of course I love clouds. So this little painting has it all.

Wishing you a very happy Sunday.

Thank you Jennifer Rose,

It is a strange experience. I needed to buy something I could
only get there. Most of my clothes are very old. I do literally
wear things out. Lol.

Love your work.


Jennifer Rose said...

lol same, why get rid of something when you can still at least wear it at home lol

True Jennifer Rose,

My painting clothes are definitely old, and not fancy. And my at home most
comfortable shoes are worn right through. I follow 1 million women on
instagram, and Aja Barber. And I feel good about everything I don't buy.
