Reposting a happy post

I'm working on a city landscape. I've just begun, and
immediately I realized that I needed more supplies, and
was off to the art store.  I shifted some of my work around
last week, and one of my favourite landscapes is in the studio.
It is 4 x 6 feet, and is definitely encouraging me, as it is
quite good. (Yes I did say that.)

But this post from a former painting also got me thinking,
so I'm sharing it again. I will update the post a bit.  But I like it.

"One (four years) ago I did this small painting, which I loved right away.
My love of landscape and for the park in the painting has become
greater over time.  And now if at all possible we go and visit
the park at least once a week.  We feel known there by the birds
we feed, even by some of the people, although the park is huge and
on the other side of town.

(In 2020) I finished a larger painting based on the same view, and
using the smaller work as a jumping off point.  It is Saturday night
(in the blog post)on a busy holiday weekend, and I hope you enjoy
seeing these 
two again.  Both are available if you're in the mood for a
visual escape.  I will deliver them, masked, and social distanced
if you are in the Toronto region."

Have a loving your life day.

Thank you so much Evelyn,

We love that park so much. I have done quite a few paintings
based on views that made me happy there.
