In 2023 I used this painting of my son Sam on July 3, because it was a holiday
weekend. This year I am trying to prep and complete 5 paintings for a show 
delivery tomorrow morning.  So it seems right again for me. 

Here's what I said in a former blog:

"I have been lucky for my entire artistic life to have a super
supportive family.  This painting is of my son Sam who
posed for me many times during his late teens when he
was living at home and a ready subject.  Christopher,
my son, my daughter-in-law Megan, Steven, my husband
and our various animals have all posed. And I am grateful
for them.  Big time."

Have a loving what you do day.
