The AGO accepted submissions on their "Portraits of Resilience" online gallery last year.  They were asking artists to show how they were able to cope with the "pandemic". 


I submitted my painting, "Contagious Joy", with the following description....


Joy is unchanging even in the midst of trying circumstances. How wonderful if this joy could spread like a a virus in a pandemic from heart to heart.



I was thrilled to learn "Contagious Joy" was one of 110 submissions included in the wall of paintings at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Apparently, over 3000 submissions were entered from across Canada, as well as all over the world.
