(One of my all time favourite
paintings because the family
is so happy, and because they were
wonderful models in a hard
time in my life.)

Today was Family Day in some provinces in Canada.  Ontario had the day
off.  At the moment we can't see our family without rapid tests. Many in our 
immediate family were recovering from flu and we miss them so much.
Happily our son Sam came for dinner, and that was wonderful. We missed his
wife, Emily who was in Barrie with her parents.

If it wasn't Family Day where you live, hug your family, or give them
a call.  And hug the friends who are like family for you. We need each other now.

And to Megan, Christopher, Emily, Sam,Alice, Madeleine, James, Sally, Angus, Andrew,
Lina, Jemma, Jackson, Quincy, Jon, Kathryn, Rose, Rae, our dog Sally, our cats --
Fiona and Monet -- Happy Family Day, and thanks for being our family.

Love to my family, and you my friends, and to my art, blogging,
Facebook, Instagram family.
