More pictures from the show

Saturday night's opening was a blast.  Joyce Fournier,
the Gallery Director at Studio Vogue Gallery, sent me
some pictures today that will give you a bit of the feeling.

Here's a picture of me with Raylea Lambert and Mick
van Leur who feature prominently in my painting Love
on the High Line.  It was great to see them and many
collectors, friends and family at the show.  Really fun.

Fun at the opening of Faces and Places at Studio Vogue Gallery 

In this picture people are having fun talking, and drinking the
wonderful wine the gallery served. Two of my paintings are in
the background.

In this shot I look like I felt last Saturday -- tired
from painting hard and delighted to be there.
Thanks again to everyone who came out.  If you
couldn't make it we're having another party at the
gallery on November 24th from 6 - 8 p.m.
 We would really love to see you then.

Have an-enjoying-art day.

Hi Nicki,

I was (am) so happy. You know how it is when the show goes up. Whew! Done.
Time to party.

I sure would have loved to see you there.

Barbara! Awesome! Your paintings are so vibrant and full of energy and colour. I love them! I had hoped to come and then couldn't but I will put the 24th in my calendar and cross my fingers. Have a great birthday celebration with your son! Cheers,

The painting of Hannah on the motorbike painting is soooo amazing Barbara...I am blown away by it and it should be winning awards. The colour and detail...the familiar, yet unfamiliar. Not only is this a beautiful , alive portrait of a lovely young woman, but it is also a portrait of that familiar superstore parking lot...and that places this painting in a particular time and place. It will be an historical reference point one day that will capture 2011 in a way that photography couldn't.

Love seeing the show pieces. it gives us all an idea of how big and bright your work is!

Liza Hirst said...

Hi Barbara, it's so nice to see how happy you look and how beautiful!
And your paintings are amazing - I hadn't realized how big they are.
I very much regret I can't be there in person!

Linny D. Vine said...

You and your paintings look beautiful, Barbara! (I'm happy to see that you had a great turnout of art lovers, too!)

Melinda said...

Great, great photos! I love how your work is highlighted. Your paintings look wonderful!

I'm so happy for you. You must be so proud of your accomplishment.

Thank you for sharing the images. Whoo-hoo!

Laurel Daniel said...

Beautiful, beautiful YOU! Congrats on this gorgeous show. It's so fun to see your paintings on the wall and to be reminded of the scale... especially fun to see the subjects of your Love on the High Line painting. They must LOVE it!!! WOO HOO! XOXO

Barbara Muir said...

Hi Kim,

I would absolutely love to see you then if you're in town. Wouldn't that be a hoot. Love your work.

XO Barbara

Barbara Muir said...

Hi Flora,

Maybe you could persuade the town of Fredericton to buy it. That would be nice eh? You are very sweet. So sorry about the tree. Very sad.


Barbara Muir said...

Hi Pam,

Yes the work certainly is bright. Big and I'd like to go bigger, but just getting the canvas home in my car is problem one.

After that we'd be sailing. Right?

Love your work.

XO Barbara

Barbara Muir said...

Oh Liza,

I would just love to see you walk in the door. I think my heart might stop with excitement, but it would start again right away. Love the London paintings.

I've been there, and can feel how great it is looking at them.


Barbara Muir said...

Hi Linny,

It was a super opening. Thanks so much and I know you know that I love your work. Come on over to Toronto!

XO Barbara

Barbara Muir said...

Hi Melinda,

I hope things are going amazingly well for you this weekend. Yes I feel happy about, and proud of this show. I like the work, which is always a good feeling. I'm over the moon that you do too. Have a great show.


Barbara Muir said...

Hi Laurel,

Thanks sooooo much. I'm delighted that you like the work. It is a beautiful show. My friend Gill's lovely watercolours are absolutely amazing. It's a good one. You are sweet.
