House in the wind
Acrylic and ink on bond paper
12 x 14 inches
Barbara Muir © 2017I drew this little drawing tonight because I missed making
art. I've been sick for the past couple of days. I saw this
palette paper with a swirl of sky blue paint. And looked
at a photo of the perfect Toronto house (there is a little
tree I didn't get time for. The mood hit late in the day).
And thought what if I drew the house on the blue?
Then the car was there, and I just received a gold calligraphy
pen in a Sketchbox box, so there you go.
What is funny is that this little house, which is painted
the grey so popular in Toronto now, is probably worth
2 million dollars Canadian simply because it's on a nice
street downtown, and unattached, and despite the
vicissitudes of my drawing -- in good shape. The strange
shape on the chair is a coat it seems.
This was fun, and my swirl of paint could symbolize
the strange times we're entering, or the fierce wind
Have a having-fun-day.
