Black marker on bond paper
18 x 24 inches
Barbara Muir © 2013The other day I picked up some super bond drawing
paper. I had the idea of working on some black
and white drawings. The sheets are a good size, and
I've been craving a large space to work in. I know I'm
gearing up for another work in very large size, but don't
know what I'll be painting...yet.
Tonight after a hectic day racing around, I settled down
to draw. In art from my student days, drawing was my
first language, and it is a bit like meditation for me.
The feel of the pen gliding over the smooth bond paper
is magnificently pleasurable. One of my themes this year
has been the celebration of meals.
To me the idea of a shared breakfast in a hotel room
is one of the nicest, most intimate meals a couple can
enjoy. But all aspects of dining are intriguing to me. In
this drawing, the breakfast is over, and only the empty
glasses, coffee cup, bread basket and open jam jar are
left to tell the story. I'm sure it's a happy one.
Have an enjoying-a-meal-with-a-loved-one day.
