Bright dreams

Another spoon please
acrylic on canvas
8 x 8 inches
Barbara Muir 2009

Hi everyone. I don't mean to bother you with descriptions
of our life. Today's painting is an exercise in dreaming.
I love the idea of sitting in a cafe in the morningin Italy
having a cappuccino, or two. I think I should call the painting
"another spoon please?" Maybe I will. In fact we are
living a perfect life, and I wish we had longer, because
I've never felt more inspired by the landscape and
people than I do this year. But the nights already
are a bit chilly, and hinting at fall, and that means
there's a lot of work to do when we get home, which
is great.

Tonight we're having supper with our wonderful
friends Diane and Gary, who have a beautiful
cottage overlooking the beach where we walk every
day. We met through our dogs, and Diane's an
artist, and Gary a writer. Wow! We feel blessed
beyond compare.

See you soon.

Have a dancing-on-Saturday-night day.

Another incredibly colorful beauty! Love this. It has a lithograph/Warhol feel to it. Amazing!

Hi Gwen,

Thanks so much. I have to blog while my husband waits for me in a cafe, so I am behind on your wonderful comments and on seeing your work. That's a treat in store when I get home.
