I have painted one Madonna and Child not in a seated position.
The prototype is from a small book of Coptic icons, I added the cured lines as there is a saying,
"God writes straight with crooked lines".
The end of August in Canada it is a time of endings and beginnings, seasonal, school is restarting, families if they are moving have probably done so by now. And me too, I have moved. Where I have ended up I would never have seen, I was not looking at this part of Ontario but back in early June an interesting apartment rental ad brought me here to look. Although that ad did not work out, I came to Collingwood, on the shores of Georgian Bay, a beautiful place to be.
"The future comes out of what is done in the present" I have just lived the truth of this, several trips and viewings of rentals prepared me for the moment when the ad appeared for my current rental and I knew from afar that this is where I wanted to be.
