Thanks for 2012

First, a new baby. But also six fast painting contests, six exhibitions, five outdoor shows, a studio tour, and friendships with new galleries. Travels to Valencia in Spain, Porto in Portugal, Treviso in Italy, and Algonquin Park. Research on Goya and the Spanish Civil War in Aragón. About 40 novels read and the equivalent of a trip to Montreal and back in running. I joined a soccer team and volunteered at Immigrant Services. We protested migrant detention centres in Valencia. We settled O. into JK. Planted a garden and painted our house. We bought a BBQ, built a picnic table, and threw a few parties. We spent our first real summer in Canada since 2007, and it was great.

It was a stimulating, prosperous, whirlwind of a year, 2012. Its relationships, new and re-nurtured, the community, and family have made me wealthy. Thanks for sharing the time!

    1. Hola Shaudin! Efectivament, era un any molt productiu, i amb tots els problemes en el mon em sent un poc culpable d'haver-ho tingut.

  2. When were you up at Algonquin Park? Did you paint there?

    1. Sometime in August. We camped on Kearney Lake for three nights and it was bliss. But no painting. Couldn't find any hydro lines or back alleys.
