After the market

Barbara Muir © 2012Hi there. Well it was quite the month. My dear son
Christopher got married last weekend to his sweetheart
Megan. It was a gloriously beautiful wedding in a country
setting, and the pictures aren't in yet. As the mother of the
groom I didn't have much time to take pictures, so we will
have to wait. The very happy couple are on a three week
honeymoon now, so wait we will.
Meanwhile I am still recovering -- great days, and very tired
days from a cold that became pneumonia, but I do see the
light. Most days I feel my old energy returning, so I hope I'll
be blogging more because I am certainly working.
Today we went to the market and I did this watercolour and
pen sketch of the table loaded with peaches from the market and
jugs of Nasturtiums from the garden. Already frost is threatened
and Torontonians used to a summer of high heat are affronted by
nature proceeding towards fall. The garden is at a high of lush
abundance, and it is hard to think of it all turning to mush one
Have a gathering-in-your-harvest day.
Good to see you making progress health wise Barbara. Sounds like you had a rough time. So nice that you could make the wedding though. Keep resting up but if you want to paint, then do! A lovely image from you here.
It was rough and thank you. There is almost no time for rest now, but that's okay. A full life is a happy one.
Love your work.
Love this painting! So much of your work is a home run with me. Glad your health is on the upswing.
And I love your painting. Thank you so much.
Hi Barbara!!! I'm so glad you are feeling better and congratulations on your son's wedding! Once again, you and I are totally in sync. My son is getting married to his wonderful fiancé in two weeks!!! What a happy, happy time this is for both of us! Happy you are back!
So glad to hear that you are getting better! And congratulations for your son's wedding. Can't wait to see photos. I have missed your posts and have been wanting to write for quite some time, but we were travelling abroad once again and very busy. So sorry! Take care, Liza
Wow - a wedding! Congrats to your son. I can't wait to see a few pictures on the blog. I bet it was beautiful ; ) A world full of promise indeed! A beautiful work.
I thought of you often on September 8, and how dignified you looked in your lovely dress at your last family wedding. I have no idea how my look came off. But I had so much fun. The ceremony was lovely and the party afterwards lively and wonderful.
Have a super time at your son's wedding.
I am happy to be posting again. I realize that in some ways the blog is like an engine. I give art to it, create it because it's there, and then love seeing everyone else's work and being part of this fantastic community. I so missed it.
Let's talk soon.
I don't think we'll see pictures for a few weeks. Those two are off in Bali having an awesome honeymoon. The
photographers were completely unobtrusive and I loved that, particularly because Christopher is a photographer.
It was an absolutely wonderful wedding, and we are all delighted with the memories.
