Barbara Muir © 2012Hi everyone,
Here's a picture of the bottom half of the big, big
still life. I will put a better picture on tomorrow,
because the right hand side is a bit bleached out
in this one.
kitchen counter, I got so excited. I have to admit
working on this painting makes me feel like a
kid on Christmas morning every time I look at it.
Just the sheer scale makes me want to sing and
dance. Just ask my family. Dancing way too much.
And still painting.
The life of an artist is inspired by the visual, and
emotional in all shapes and sizes. Just finished
reading a very tough, but totally rewarding novel
The Good Dream by Donna VanLiere. Parts
of it were excrutiatingly sad. The story us about
a boy living with an abusive man, who is noticed
by a very kind woman.
Artists are also moved by small things like the
sight of these pigeons eating. Steven and I sat
in the car stunned by our vet bill, and this scene
lifted my mood.
Please give generously to the Red Cross Relief
fund for people trying to recover from the
devastation of Hurricane Sandy.
Have a good Sunday.
