Barbara Muir © 2014After a wonderful day that culminated with meeting
my dear cousin Peter at the gallery to show him
my work, I headed home happy and exhausted
to make dinner and watched a glorious series of
TED Talks while I did. Some I've watched before,
and enjoyed reconnecting with them, and some were
new. All of them were geared to starting your
motor again and jumping you back to life.
Joyce Fournier adjusting my paintings
today in the gallery
up my friend Janet Vanderhoof's work. Watching
a video of Janet working made me want to paint.
And there's the miracle. I started this painting of
lemons a few days ago, and have had zero time to
paint. Janet got me back in the studio, and although
it's not finished, I feel happy about the painting so far.
More than that -- painters gotta paint -- so the act of
painting made me joyous. Thank you Janet. And
thank you Joyce, for being a gracious gallery director,
and thanks to everyone (and there are quite a few of
you) who made this a great day!
More work in the Studio Vogue show, on now
and until November 29, from 11a.m. - 6 p.m.
Wednesday - Saturday.Have a witnessing-the-miracle day.
