Wonder Water Image #1, #2, #3
Acrylic on canvas
90 x 30 inches
Barbara Muir © 2014April is a busy month, and one of the reasons
is getting ready for showing in the Amsterdam
Whitney Gallery in New York in May. I held
this treat out for myself through the long, very
cold winter, and it made me happy the whole time.
The series Wonder Water Image #1,#2, and #3
came out of this period. It is about the world's oceans
and the people who love them, and would want them
to be enjoyed and saved.
I read a piece on Alyson Stanfield's blog about
galleries needing a series and decided to continue
the ocean series I started in 2010 for this year's
show in New York. Some day I will fill a gallery
with these pieces -- so far I've painted six.
This year's pieces seem much happier, quite
different from the first three, in ways that
make me happy as a painter. The bar that
runs across all three represents the beach,
or sand bar in every location.
So here's what it looks like, although in
this picture Wonder Water Image # 1 is not
complete. The first two went off to the
shipper ahead of this one, while I made
final changed to is, which I'll show you
Have a wondering-at-nature day.
Sounds like a great show!
Hi Barbara! Your ocean series is wonderful and I hope I can come and see your exhibition when you fill a gallery with them one of these days!
Your portraits are getting better all the time and these last ones are truly formidable!! Congratulations!
I wish you lots of success in New York - you deserve it. Take care my friend, yours Liza
Wow, there you go.
Three beauties on their way to New York - including you that will make four and then counting Steven, that makes five.
Thank you so much. I'm really looking forward to it. It's always a lot of fun. Love your work.
Oh how I would like to see you at one of my shows here, but if not I will see you in Europe!!! (Not sure when, but it is my dream).
Miss you, and your lovely work.
Thank you from a great beauty. Time to get you to pose for me -- in person. Yeah! Good idea. Say hi to David, the beauty you live with. You know I love your work!!!!
