Well, that was certainly a year like no other. We have seen remarkable acts of humanity and inhumanity through 2020. I am so fortunate to work from home, to have a home, to have friends and family.
As a Canadian, I found that in spite of restrictions, or even because of them, there were many things to enjoy in 2020. We had the opportunity to explore local, to get outside, to see nature breathe a sigh of relief as fuel emissions declined. I found myself enjoying the local lakefront even more last year — as a run destination, a cycling route, a lovely walk. The view from here is never the same, always beautiful.
I haven’t painted landscape very often in the past but I may just try to capture some of this on canvas. Happy New Year everyone, may you find peace in the beauty of nature.
