As 2017 winds down, let’s take some time to reflect on the year we have all had. Politically it’s been exhausting, but there have been triumphs amongst the bad things. In my case, it was going to Concordia, rediscovering the joys of making art, and learning new skills. I hope 2018 brings more of the same, and I leave you with my final piece of art for the year, namely a painting about family that is highly personal to me. Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2018!
