The 4th thing I learned -- art makes people happy! Stepping into the light goes home

Georgia Fullerton's (India's mother) desk -- 

Today we travelled to Ajax in lovely sunny weather to take my
portrait of India Morgan home. The painting is called Stepping
into the light
, and I know that if the painting could talk it would
say that that's exactly what happened today.  It finally stepped 
into it's right place -- and the subject -- India was as excited as
her mother to see this work.

What a great feeling that is as an artist -- to make people happy.
It's an over the moon joy let me tell you.  Thank you to India for
sending me photos, and talking to me on Zoom so we could
get this painting done. 

And thank you to Georgia Fullerton for her patience in waiting
for the painting to arrive. 

Have a loving your life day.
