The happiest view

Barbara Muir © 2017Today's painting will I hope be the centerpiece in my New York
exhibition next month at the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery. Finishing
it made me so happy -- because the scale (quite large) really gets
across the magic of clouds over the ocean. It's almost like clouds,
dance, and stretch and breathe into the most gorgeous and luminous
sculptural shapes when they have the space -- over rolling farmland,
or the wide open ocean. They get both opportunities in Canada's
And we artists on the ground looking up are in complete awe. I felt
like I got that with this one. And I love it. So once again -- if you
are in New York City when my three paintings are part of a group
show at the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery in Chelsea. Let me know
and I'll send you an invite to the champagne opening between
3 and 5 p.m. on September 9.
Thank you for all your support. We artists and collectors and curators
need one another, and I feel so lucky to get to do this work.
Have a marvelling at clouds day.
