Art on the move

Wonder Water Image #5
Acrylic on canvas
30 x 30 inches
Barbara Muir © 2015
I've been working on this portrait for the past
while, destined for a show in Europe.
The young woman is my son's friend,
and a delightful person.  She is kind, funny,
and super smart, and was happy to pose for
me for this portrait -- part of my ocean

We are heading out to the ocean for the next
few days, and I'll try to post during our travels,
but I know the internet can be spotty, especially
in rural areas.

Thank you to Emily for posing for me.  The
ocean series is about both the joy in living
near the ocean, and the worry about what we've
been doing to our planet and these vital
bodies of water.

Have a taking-care-of-the-planet day.

This is a lovely addition to your series Barbara!
It has been soooo hoooootttt here will be glad to have those ocean breezes, I'm sure.

Gorgeous! I love your vivid colour and expressive quality. Have a great time at the ocean Barbara!

Barbara Muir said...

Hi Flora,

Thank you. It is super hot here, and Torontonians are wildly happy about it.
I will really appreciate the ocean breezes. We'll call when we get there.

Hi Kim,

Thanks so much. We used the better camera, it does make a
difference in how things look ;-) I will think of
you when we're in Pugwash, and hope to see you sometime
in September!

Your paintings have a such wonderful energy and freshness, Barbara.
I hope the triple digit temps are behind us - enjoy the ocean!

Hi Marilyn,

Thank you, I feel exactly the same way about your
work. Luckily we've just been hitting the high
double digits. I will enjoy the ocean!
