Lunch at the desk
8 x 10 inches
Barbara Muir © 2012Dear friends,
Happy American Thanksgiving. Our little Canadian
Thanksgiving is long over, but the memory of the
turkey and happy days off together remains. So
you deserve a little break and some special dinners
with one another.
Lately I've been so busy I can hardly get a breath.
Every time I feel like making even the tiniest
complaint about this, I consider the alternative.
I am not a city person for nothing. I love the
hustle and bustle of this place -- constant action and
excitement. But I also look forward to life
being just a little bit simpler over the holidays.
Is that possible?
I am posting a little iPad drawing today in honour
of the major inspiration for the very big painting I'm
working on -- David Hockney. It's a still life
based on a working lunch. You can see a file
folder, a typed page, keys, a bottle of milk, a half
eaten apple and a plastic sandwich bag.
Now it's back to painting on the big ones. I'll post
more on that later in the week. Meanwhile
have some turkey and pumpkin pie for me
America -- I can fill up on the thought of your
celebrations. This fall has offered a wedding,
Thanksgiving, plus six family birthdays --
thought is really all I should be eating until Christmas.
Have a loving-the-feast-of-thoughts day.
