A Magic Day in the Neighbourhood

Barbara Muir © 2016Today I sold one of my favourite street/cloud scenes -- A Magic Day
in the Neighbourhood -- to collectors in New York City. This intimate
painting of the school yard up the street from us in Toronto, was one
of a pair of paintings I did about where we live. The one that struck
the collectors was a view of an idyllic day right here at home,
and the other one is of the view across the street from our school house
in Nova Scotia.
Yes I am pumped about the sale. The buyers loved my clouds, and
the mood, and even the title. Wonderful. My thanks to Director Ruthie
Tucker, Torie and Diego at the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery for
showing my work so beautifully!
I meant to tell you more about Paris, and New York -- last
month was jam packed with travel and art, but I have a horrendous
cold, and the rest will have to wait.
I hope you have a magic day in your neighbourhood tomorrow.
I love my own neighbourhood, and the family and friends nearby make
it extra special.
