Flowered flying heart
Acrylic on canvas
8 x 8 inches
Barbara Muir © 2011I have so much painting to do -- so today I
painted a little heart painting to use on my
Valentine card. I'm having a postcard made,
and if you're in town, or around on Valentine's
Day you might get one. The painting is what
I wish for everyone on Valentine's Day, and
all month, all year for that matter -- blue skies,
lots of love and flowers. It sums up the goofy,
wonderful feeling possible on Valentine's Day.
I'll show you the postcard once the master
designers at my printer are finished with it.
While I was painting this -- I listened to Helen Fisher
give a great talk about love on TED TV and
discovered that the parts of the brain
activated for love, are common to not just
humans, but to all animals. Not only that,
people in long, and happy love relationships
show the very same brain activity as those
who have just fallen in love -- in other words
they are crazy. Okay I admit it.
