Barbara Muir © 2012I don't have a new painting tonight, but I wanted to
wish you Happy December. Alyson Stanfield wrote a
Thanksgiving weekend piece called A Feast for
the eyes: Food in Art this past weekend. She asked
artists to share their food paintings and I posted my
painting of Breakfast at the Skylight Diner NYC there.
Whatever your religious or spiritual beliefs,
December's a lovely month. Lights are starting to
show up in the dark. Fantasy and fun is in the cold air.
The decorations in store windows are astounding
and inspiring. It's a beautiful month -- and
at the end the inspiration of a whole new
fresh 12 months, stretching out full of promise.
I am a fan of Christmas, even though I'm not
religious. I love the music, the presents, the
food, the parties and seeing friends. Plus a short
break from work for all of us is a treat.
Have a getting-ready-for fun day.
