A humbling experience…

I sit here in my studio in front of my easel, Gandhi’s image warms my smile. I had my fair share of struggles with this painting. I guess I wanted to honor this great man on an elaborate canvas, but instead I painted him on an oil primed board, lot’s of texture. At first I struggled with it, on the verge of giving up the board and starting fresh on canvas. But then I awoke the next morning to find Gandhi’s face beaming, his stance and character with a life of it’s own. I’m pleased 🙂

My son, his wife and my two grandsons have left South Africa and are in a plane heading for Canada. I can’t even begin to contain my excitement. Tears stream my face, it’s been way too long. Soon I”ll be holding my two grandsons for the first time. There are no words to describe how I feel right now….. elation? Most definitely 🙂 🙂 🙂
