Sasha -- Art Group Sketch
Acrylic on canvas
20 x 24 inches
Barbara Muir © 2013After a long day I went to paint with my art
group tonight. There are some wonderful
painters in the group, and when the model
breaks we talk. Tonight I think the other artists
were tired like I was, but I had one short
discussion about art. To all of you out
there painting on a regular basis it might
seem simple, but it's what I've been thinking
about lately. An artist I really admire in
my group who easily creates four or five
strong paintings in a night, while the rest
of us come away with one agreed that Painters
paint. We don't do it for fame. It may not even
be a life decision. We do it because that is what
I like that idea. And so in the brief time I
was with the group, I painted this portrait
sketch. The model posed with an intense
almost angry expression. He was wearing
a sports jacket, and the entire look created
a mood I enjoyed painting with gusto.
Have a being-a-painter-who-paints day.
this is a dynamic painting so full of color and life. I will keep your words in mind today.
I will try and keep it in mind too.
Harder at this time of year!
