Clouds over the bay
Acrylic on canvas
40 x 40 inches
Barbara Muir © 2014I meant to post my Wonder Water Image series
tonight, but realized there are one or two small
changes I want to make before I do. So here
instead is a large landscape I'm working on,
and it is very close to finished. You may remember
the smaller painting I did that sent me off in
But the real inspiration was the sky this summer
-- always full of glorious clouds, that begged
a painter of people like me to say -- "Huh!
will you look at that!" And I've been looking up
ever since. I am pretty happy with this one. At
40 x 40 inches -- the scale is strong enough to
almost evoke the same feeling I had standing at the
shore and seeing this. Total awe. The real thing.
Have a feeling-total-awe day.
40x40! That must be stunning. Looks fabulous Barbara. I really love the colour in the clouds.
Thanks So much Kim,
I have to photograph it in better light, but I am happy with it.
It's a whole new world -- but brings back Nova Scotia to me, which is a bit of an ache in my heart when I'm not there! ;-)
Beautiful big sky, so dramatic. Happy birthday to all of you - I know this is birthday season at the Muir/Van Schaik homestead.
wow I LOVE this Barbara!!! 40x40 is a great size for a skyscape! I like the way you simplified the land shapes giving more power to the sky shapes. wonderful!
Thank you. Yes it is! Glad you like it. I am into clouds big time at the moment. A nice way to be it turns out.
Thank you so much. This was one of the awesome skies this summer that converted me into an absolute sky freak. I thought of you the other day when I was painting yet another skyscape landscape. I thought of how you glaze, and that was very helpful. Love your work.
