Barbara Muir © 2018In my art sometimes I'm loose, and sometimes uptight.
I like some of the work that develops from both states,
so I can't yell out that loose is better -- but I sure enjoy
watching loose painters like Susan Rothenberg, and
Bob Burridge paint.
In the past week I've watched videos of a few super
loose and dynamic painters painting, which is
probably why I could get this portrait painted last
night at my art group in such a short time. I felt
happy to have a good size canvas prepared. I loved
having a group of creative people around me --
and away I went.
Seeing the model at first, who was shy, (and I didn't get his
name, I'm sorry), I would not have expected this painting. But
it flew out of me, and the model was brilliantly inspiring
in his steady, non assuming pose.
So there you have it. Thank you to loose painters everywhere.
I will join you from time to time. And thank you to my
