Come and see this work at the Heliconian Club, 35 Hazelton Ave. in
Toronto,  tomorrow between 2 and 5 p.m. I will be there from 2 - 3 p.m.
Did I mention that there will be cookies, and coffee in very beautiful cups?

The title of this work One of the best is about Michael Gibson's
outstanding skill as a portrait artist. If you haven't seen 
Michael Gibson's
workfollow the link here to view some of the most fantastic portraits
being created today. They are frequently 
accompanied by
deeply moving poetry, or descriptions of his subjects.  I 
wanted to paint
Michael,  to honour 
him for his glorious work.  Not too surprisingly
my portrait of Michael based 
on a video he did about his drawings took
me awhile to complete.

I had his approval to paint him, and when it was finally 
done, and Michael saw my write up on it, he liked the painting. That was so wonderful. I was over the moon happy.

I hope you can come out and see it. 

Have a loving your life day.
