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.
