This is a painting of a friend in our rural neighbourhood. Emily was the first to stop by to check on us and drop off food when C-19 hit and we have had many visits since. It is in her blood to be helpful, cheerful and sincere. The setting of this painting is in the winter when her hair was covered in icy crystals after skiing.
