For instance, this was “Making Peace with November”.
And this was “Making Peace with December”
I believe this one was “Making Peace with January”, but as I look back on my artwork, well, it sometimes is a puzzle to me, what I made when and in what context:
I also see I have a picture entitled “January 3rd”……
