Life and Work of Sandi Hill

Hi Everyone,

I miss you all terribly and have been trying to stay busy so as not to go completely insane while I live on my own.  Without a job or a cottage to visit or a backyard to sit in, I have been walking into High Park every morning, only a 10-minute walk from me.  Thank you God for that park!  It is beautiful and fresh and full of people like me who are receiving all the gifts nature can provide.  I have completed many sketches there.

Back in my apartment, I have been doing some virtual singing with the Church of the Redeemer choir.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyR0nteK06g.  Maybe our church choir could go virtual.   

In addition, I have read many breathtakingly marvelous books lately:

  1. ‘Becoming’ by Michelle Obama;
  2. ‘The Splendid and the Vile’ by Eric Larson, about Winston Churchill’s first year in power during the Blitz of London, England;
  3. ‘The Mirror and the Light’ by Hillary Mantel;
  4. ‘My Dark Vanessa’ by Kate Elizabeth Russell; and
  5. ‘Trumpocalypse’ by David Frum

Next on my list are:

  1. ‘The Skin We’re In’ by Desmond Cole; and
  2. ‘The Vanishing Half’ by Brit Bennett.

Finally, I have been teaching myself to paint thanks to two incredible international artists who offer online courses:

  1. ‘Will Kemp Art School.’  He lives in England and teaches acrylics.
  2. ‘My Painting Club’ by Richard Robertson.  He lives in New Zealand and teaches oils.

The painting of the orange slices on a blue plate are from Will Kemp’s painting blog.

All my love,

Sandi Hill
