My painting is on the Artwalk poster

The St. Clair Artwalk happens this weekend.
This is not a perfect photo of the poster,
which is not only perfect but features my work!
Today I picked up some St. Clair Artwalk posters to post around the
neighbourhood and to give to stores and schools in the
area to encourage people to come out for Artwalk.
By the way if you're in Toronto please come and see
me in my studio, you can find the map on the Artwalk web site.
I will be exhibiting in my studio from 12 noon until 4 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday.

What a treat for me to be putting up a poster with a lovely image
of my work. Water Image 2 is on the upper left hand side of
the poster. I am so excited. Got to get some shut eye so I
can go through my prep list and make sure I'm ready for
my guests this weekend. It is going to be so much fun.

Have a come-on-along-and-let-the-good-times-roll day.

Fabulous rock star poster layout, Barbara! Water Image 2 is one of my favorites. Congratulations and have a wonderful time during your open studio.

Linda Popple said...

The poster looks great! Have a fantastic time!

Liza Hirst said...

wow! Congratulations, my dear!
I wish you a wonderful weekend and as always - I wish I could come along!
We're going to London tomorrow for 10 days and I'm quite excited. Don't know what I'll do in regard to painting - maybe draw...?

Melinda said...

Whoo-hooo! That is the best poster I've every seen.

You're gonna have such fun. I'll send you some happy clouds without any cold rain--just to smile over the event and to wish you well.

Pam Holnback said...

Congratulations. It's always fun to get recognition. And, the poster looks great.

Hi Marilyn,

Thanks so much. I'm glad you like the painting. So do I. I will have a super time during the open studio. It's always a lot of fun with friends, and new friends dropping by.

Take care,


Barbara Muir said...

Hi Linda,

Thanks so much. I will indeed. I'll raise a glass to you on Friday night at the opening.



Barbara Muir said...

Hi Liza,

Thanks so much. One day you are going to be here, and you'll walk into this tiny little semi and be
amazed that so much hype comes out of this tiny space. I cannot wait for that to happen.

Hi Melinda,

I hope you liked the Jimi Hendrix link at the bottom of this post. That's for fabulous guitar player like you. A soul sister to Mr. Jimi. Just hit the good times roll line, and then enjoy.

Thanks for the happy clouds. I am seeing them everywhere. I know they're working.


Kim Rempel said...

Wow. I have to say your piece kinda steals the show on that poster! Looks fabulous Barbara!

Elizabeth Seaver said...

O congratulations, Barbara! What an honor. And what a fabulous painting, too. Good luck with the artwalk.

so exciting to see your work on the poster! Congrats! It's a lovely piece, so i'm not surprised it got chosen. I hope you have a great weekend for Artwalk.

Laurel Daniel said...

Very cool to see your work in print - and what a handsome poster it is! CONGRATS!!!!! You are fully featured and so deserve that spot! XOXOXO Laurel

Nicki said...


This is so exciting! Really... congrats! They picked a stunner to showcase on the poster. People will definitely be seeking you and your studio out. Wish I could be one of them!

Good luck,

Melinda said...

Ha! I clicked on the Jimi link and got a big, silly, happy grin on my face.

Thank you. Made my day. Warming up the tube amp...

Barbara Muir said...

Hi Pam,

Thanks so much. It is great to get recognition and I really like the poster too.

Take care,

Your paintings are wonderful.


Barbara Muir said...

Hi Kim,

Thanks so much. You are way too kind. No all the work is good. The only downside of being part of the show is that you don't get to go around and see everyone else's work. I'd enjoy that.


Barbara Muir said...

Hi Elizabeth,

Yes it is an honour. Thanks so much. I'm really looking forward to the weekend.


Barbara Muir said...

Hi Sally,

One of these days we must meet. Isn't it a strange world. I love your work -- and you know it. Thanks for your good wishes. Now weather person, no more thunder storms!

Last night was awesome, terrifying.



Barbara Muir said...

Hi Laurel,

Thanks so much. I love the work you've been posting about values. I try to think about value, but all I see is colour. Then I realize that every work I love has magnificent values too. You are great!

Love your work.


Barbara Muir said...

Hi Nicki,

Thanks so much. I am thrilled of course that they picked my painting, and especially one of my new water series. I am going back to that very soon. Expect more water series people.

Thanks again.
