Snow on Cherrywood
Acrylic on canvas
8 x 8 inches
Barbara Muir © 2013This little painting is one of several that's been
cooking all winter. I finished it, and something
bothered me. Other projects took up my time and
then it hit me one day -- it's the blue car on the street.
It has to be red. Presto -- pop -- done.
A friend in my art group, Peter, says that sometimes
all that's needed is the smallest of changes. And I
know he's right. In the city this look is gone --
maybe for good this season. The huge, rock hard snow
drifts of last week have almost disappeared, and I saw my
first dandelion, peaking up through a bit of remaining
snow today. Those guys definitely work right through
their winter holidays.
When I began this just looked like a landscape -- the
one out my front door -- now with the muddy season
upon us, it looks romantic.
Have a loving-the-place-you-live-in day.
