Grandmothers - Ode of Joy- becomes Ode of sorrow

It was one of my favourites, I did love this work. Making it, working with the model gave me such pleasure, I will try to remember that.
There is no conceivable reason for someone to do such mischief.
Yesterday we had a reunion of Spirit of Place, this was a painters group I was part of. In May of 1997 we had a show at the Wellington County Museum called "Spirit of Place". We were 7, our own group of 7. 5 of us came together, Wendy who lives in Toronto could not make it and John Hansplant has passed away last year. We hope to come together again next year for week of painting.
