The total joy of happy collectors!

A collector's arrangement of Barbara Muir works.  © Barbara Muir.
I love these three paintings which all glorify daily life -- my intention
when I painted them.  And it makes me happy to see that. Thank
you to a wonderful collector.

Is there anything better for an artist than being
taken through someone's house to see the place
where your art is displayed?  No way!  You
dream up ideas in the night, you plan, and paint
and think about your work.  And then in a show,
or a private viewing -- Woo Hoo!  It sells.

Yes.  That is a huge thrill, made even bigger
if possible, by a collector who shows you
how your work looks with wide, wide smiles
beaming with pride.  Whew!  Knock me out!

One such wonderful collector sent me this photo
of my work yesterday.  What a delight.

Have a loving-your-collectors day!

Thank you so much Laura,

I would love that. Yes let's do it when you come home all charged up from Italy, and
me from Nova Scotia!

Hi Alyson,

Thank you so much. I hope to encourage more collectors to send me photos of
the work. It makes us so happy as artists to see how people display
our work.

I love what you do.
