Barbara Muir © 2015When I was getting ready for my last show
this beautiful young woman called me
up to invite me to another opening,
happening as she spoke. I was up to
my ears in paint and couldn't go, so
she insisted on visiting me.
What a treat! She loved my paintings,
our house, enjoyed meeting my husband.
Our cat Timbah loved her, and balanced
on her shoulder with one of his legs on the
back of her chair, the whole time we
visited drinking coffee and laughing
at our kitchen table.
When she left I was happy and felt
more confident about my work. Her
visit was like a breath of fresh air.
It made me feel so joyous today
drawing her and remembering that
Have a welcoming-upbeat-guests day.
