Barbara Muir © 2012Hi everyone,
Or your sad babies, or your mothers, fathers, sisters,
brothers. Just finished this commission of a baby, and
the client was very happy. I painted the baby's older sister
a few years ago, and although their faces are quite different
I wanted the paintings to connect, so I painted similar
leaves going in the opposite direction on the current painting.
I loved the baby's expression -- that straight up joy that
babies express so perfectly. She is a beauty. I am always
touched when clients come back to me because they
loved an earlier painting.
Tonight my dear friend and wonderful artist, Sally Chupick,
(who I met through blogland) and runs the Gallery at
the Porch Door, dropped in and we had some
wine together. Sally is always so sunny and warm. It's a
delight to spend time with her. We had both had long days
and didn't feel up to a photo, so forgive me for not
Have a sending-me-your-babies day.
