Barbara Muir © 2014I can't believe I missed my blog anniversary on
February 18, 2008! I've been blogging for six years!!!
Wow! That time sped by in a flash and has been
filled with exciting and incredibly enriching artistic
experiences. Thank you to everyone.
I think it is fitting that the day before my annual
bloganniversary I was was in Ottawa selling one of my
favorite paintings ever. So I was on the art beat, just
not focused on this important occasion.
What a fantastic ride it's been! New friends, super art to
read about, and to create, wonderful travels to great art
sites and friends, TV shows! Woo Hoo as some of my
friends say. And now as Alyson Stanfield would
remind me -- it's time to get back into the studio.
But do this for me first. Have a glass of whatever it
is you like to drink, and toast to blogging, to our friendship,
to art, and -- if you like -- to me. And I'll do the same --
I'll toast to you! Thank you for everything. It's been six
And if you like come on the blog, add a comment, and
I will write you back. Woo Hoo!
No time for painting today, but I plan to polish these
two paintings tomorrow. Today I wanted to show
you how they go together. They are part of the
ocean series that I started in 2010. Going back
to an older theme is fascinating, because my "eye"
or artistic thinking has changed quite a bit.
To give you an idea of the scale --
Here are the paintings on the kitchen cabinet.Happy Bloganniversary to you!
