Patti-Anne's visitation and my art group

We drove to Kitchener today to see Frank Daley and his family
at the visitation for Patti-Anne Fitzpatrick, Frank's wife.
I wish Patti-Anne could seen that so many people
came out to pay their respects, and everyone was talking about
how much they loved her.

It was good to see Frank, and Regan, and Rob, and their son,
Liam.  And we met friends of Frank and his family. 

Afterwards we drove home through the most amazing skies
I think I've ever seen -- dark rain clouds, with rain coming
down, and bright blue skies with white clouds right next to
the rain.  At one point there was a rainbow arching across the
sky from both types of sky, and flashing rainbow colours in
the spray behind cars driving through puddles.

I got home and went to spend my regular Tuesday night hour
with my art group.  And this is the result.  A wonderful model,
and everyone in the group doing wonderful work.

Have an enjoying your life day.

Another beautiful life sketch❣️❣️❣️ I love how rainbows and shooting stars appear for our friends no longer with us here. At least it seems so to me. 🤗❣️❣️❣️

It is fascinating isn't it? You are so immersed in
feeling about the person, that everything seems related
for days.

Love your work.
