I made a few changes to my portrait of Michael Gibson yesterday,
and posted the painting on Instagram. I wrote Michael to tell him
that if he didn't like the portrait I'd do another one when COVID was

I was so happy.  I think I started the portrait last July.  I have been
very anxious, and there has been so little social life, teaching online,
and the constant backdrop of worrying about COVID. So until recently

an artist.

I was and am so happy.

Have a loving your life day.
