Barbara Muir © 2018Every now and then I scroll through the "see all images"
part of what's available on Google under my name
(Barbara Muir). Naturally I wince at the images of
paintings I didn't think worked, and feel fond of the
photos of portraits and landscapes that went well.
But scrolling through the paintings by me today
I ran into the paintings of an Australian artist, Michael
Muir, and felt an instant affinity for his work, and
even watched a small video about him. His work ethic
is more than impressive and he has three small boys.
I so admire the paintings of Nancy Boynton Hartley,
whose work uses similar high key colour and abstraction.
Perfection in every image.
I also looked up the portrait work of Alistair Adams,
whose portraits impressed me so much when I was
mostly painting portraits. It was a busy day, but looking
at his portraits inspired me to start on this little drawing.
I hope I'll finish it tomorrow and get on to more
Have a being inspired by art day.
