Let's get this party started!
First in the Times Tables series
Acrylic on canvas
30 x 30 inches
Barbara Muir © 2013Finishing work to be delivered to a show at my art
club tonight's made this a crazy busy day. Thank
goodness for acrylic -- it dries fast. And really it
isn't as totally mad as it sounds because one
of the paintings was finished last winter, and the other
was almost finished this weekend. But I was so happy
that the second painting went well. When that happens
it feels like magic.
It was a beautiful and cool day, and in my breaks I was
out in the garden. The morning glories lasted for most
of the day, and one lone cleome, that was spared by
the lawn mower reached it's full height today and put out
the most glorious, large, lush white flower.
As promised this is the final version of my painting of
the family. (I may still work on the odd detail, but it
is done.) How I loved working with this family -- so
much so that I'm doing two more paintings to make this
a series called the Times Table series. So in fact this
party has just started. I'll talk more about that another day.
I have a really early morning tomorrow, so it's off to bed
feeling happy and accomplished.
Have a taking-pleasure-in-what-you-do day.
