Barbara Muir © 2013Here's the second face in the commission I finished
yesterday. This girl is a power house. Clearly
great teachers have inspired her. Here's to being
that kind of quality teacher.
Steven and I are taking wonderful walks with the
dog every evening. There is always something to
see and you forget that when you don't walk outside.
Yesterday we watched a kite in the park soar so high,
we thought it might interfere with low flying planes.
It was amazing. It was so high I could hardly see it,
like a very, very high flying bird.
Tonight under a beautiful moon in a clear blue sky,
we saw a rabbit sitting on someone's front
lawn. It was there when we turned to cross
the bridge over the park, and had moved
one lawn over when we headed home.
Seeing wildlife in the city makes me happy.
We saw a fox in our local park last week.
I start a new and very exciting series for a show this
fall today. I am beyond thrilled about it. Complicated
and evolving in my mind by the minute. It is the best
in Gwartzman's Art Store where I buy my canvasses, said
he likes to paint every day, "it's like breathing." A good
sentiment. Let's keep doing both.
Have a -seeing-the-magic-under-the-blue-moon day.
