Jesca (Work in progress)
Acrylic on canvas
24 x 24 inches
Barbara Muir © 2012I admit it -- it drives me crazy if I don't get
into the studio often enough. So...I'm really
excited about some upcoming events. (I call
them events, but they are very, very small and
One I am going back into the studio and putting
on a TED TV event to get back to the canvas. There
are actually several canvasses that need to be
addressed. Two I have a new model coming
tomorrow and I can't wait to take pictures of her
and talk about future paintings. And I'll tell you
more about three another day. Suddenly the year
is lifting into a state of grace and I feel so happy.
Well three I heard from an artist/model friend in New
York who I met on my last trip to the city,
and she would like to come to Toronto to pose
for artists here. She has been painted by some
very famous American painters. So we'll see
what happens there.
But there's another three, so maybe that's a four.
My favorite shows were not on tonight, which meant
back to the easel and I settled in with Jesca. I worked
on the background a bit, and made a few small touches
on her face and dress. Tomorrow I hope I'll get to refine it,
and work on the background until I'm happy with the painting.
Have a watching-the-year-lift-into-possibility day.
