Barbara Muir © 2011My painting of the dog is done, and ready to be
shipped out. I will actually miss the painting, like
I would a real pet. The dog has become so real to
me, and...but he belongs with his owners and the
model for the painting -- a gorgeous dog.
Last weekend we went to the university of Windsor to see
my son, Sam in the Shakespeare play Much Ado About Nothing.
Sam's role was the evil brother Don John, and he was magnificent
at it, even though in real life he is one of the sweetest people I know.
For sure. (Everyone tells me this skill is called "acting". Good
because that's what he's studying at university.) His costume was
spectacular, black pants, and leather boots, a long flowing black coat
lined in dark red, and a silk satin brocade shirt that gleamed
in the light in red and black. At 6'4" he was an impressive
figure on the stage, and we were excited to see what
we knew already. The boy has the chops.
Left to right: Sam, me, Megan, Christopher and Steven, who is
taking the shot.
It was an especially wonderful trip because the wholefamily was together, Christopher, our oldest, and
Megan his fiancée came with us, which made the
weekend even more fun for Sam.
Have an enjoying-your-children's-success day.
