Please come out to the Heliconian Club A Portrait By Any Other Name show

This painting is one of three I took to the Heliconian Club today to be part of the A Portrait By Any Other Name show opening on Saturday from 2 - 5 p.m.  I love the exuberance of the painting, which has three of the things I love most in it, -- water, clouds, and something to read.  Like the girl in the painting, my delight in reading began early.  I was lucky to have parents who loved to read, and read to me every night.

My parents would often read bits of the newspaper, or their current favourite book out loud to one another. And it is wonderful to sit on the dock at a favourite lake.  All in all
the painting is about joy -- one of my favourite subjects.

Have a loving your life day.
