This year is no exception- except -lol- instead of having a draw I decided to give it to someone in particular, to express my gratitude & appreciation. Someone who really has made my/our life better, to whom I truly am grateful and wish to show my thanks & love with my heart & art.
I also thought of a funny, 'private card' -only in the sence that I don't need to share it with all of you, my 'Hallmarks' are truly originals- with only one being sent & only few viewing. They are often thought of with very secific people in mind, they are personal and intimate, funny, sexual & even sad. I share them with those I trust most. I will say this one made me blush slightly and giggle most of the time I was painting it, my admiration of this man and his looks too - are no secret- althougth he is not 'my type', my age & taste matured, I like 'salt & pepper' - or white hair- which I'm sure he will have soon enough, no doubts!!!
A framed original - also of my choosing- cannabis related of course, 3 comics (signed), magazines & a copy of Hempathy by Ivan Art to educate the children!! & the hand painted card...
To: Justin Trudeau.
