For fruits' sake
Acrylic on birch panel

Barbara Muir © 2014We had a great dinner tonight with friends.
Lots of animated discussion about art. I
understood vividly that when you're making art
you think very differently about it, than
when you are a collector.
This small study of nectarines and one
lemon in a glass bowl, helped me relax
because I am working on something so
slow and painstaking that I needed the
freedom of a small painting.
Plus I want to eat a nectarine, and made
a deal with myself. I could eat one, when
I finished the painting. So I did this
painting for fruits' sake.
Have a loving-the-summer day.
