In the City

Barbara Muir © 2016My hat is off to Howard Wolinsky who has played a huge
part in my art career for the past decade. He, after all
shot the You Tube interview videos about my Skype
art that got me on the Oprah Winfrey show, and the
Where In The Skype Are You? segment.
Last fall Howard posted a picture so beautiful, so
cloud-filled, so awesome beyond compare that I asked
if I might do a painting based on the photo.
Howard went to Pakistan and India, and I went to
Florence, Italy and Paris, France. In the meantime
Howard lost the high res image, but very kindly sent
me an image so that I could begin the painting.
I decided to go large, and although the photo is not
accurate in terms of colour, and we may try and get a
better image later, here is the painting I've been
working on, bowing down to Howard's talents
in so many directions (photography is one), and
grateful beyond compare.
I had so much fun painting this one. I think it's done,
but it isn't in a show until Tuesday, so I can't
promise small changes won't occur.
Meanwhile if you want to see the piece in all its
astounding beauty go to the Super Wonder Gallery
876 Bloor Street West, Toronto, to the Scape show
opening on Friday January 29.
Have a loving-what-you-do day.
