Barbara Muir © 2015I drew this young woman the other night,
and she liked the drawing, so sent me another
image tonight, so I could try again. I think
a lot about identity. Mine is as an artist, teacher,
wife, mother, pet owner, friend in no specific
order, depending on the day.
And this young woman is holding up her work
badge, which she's proud of. But as a friend she
is also helping me produce for my identity. She
knows I teach on Wednesday afternoons,
have hurt my leg, and want to blog. Why
you ask? Because. I thank her for the
pleasure of getting to draw her again!
As soon as I have my full vigour back I
look forward to fulfilling the honour of
being nominated to post 3 paintings on
Facebook for five days. My friends
Flora Doehler, and Kim Rempel have
nominated me to do the challenge.
Flora does amazing bright floral
and landscape paintings. Her colours
sing. Kim is a stunning abstract painter,
who can paint a realistic landscape that
will take your breath away. These are
two of my all time favorite artists, and
I thank you so much.
Have a thanking-the-friends-who-get-your-identity day.
