Constant Inspiration (work in progress)
Acrylic and faux gold leaf on canvas
8 x 8 inches
Barbara Muir © 2019I went into my studio today -- still not quite full strength.
After meeting with some great women in my neighbourhood,
I was resting watching Bob Burridge's latest little video.
He is so confident, warm and encouraging, and he said get
down into the studio. Which was right.
I was nestled in bed with a book and wanted to sleep, but
I settled in the studio intending to work on a landscape I
started a while ago. Then I came on this partially started portrait
of my niece. Before I knew it I was working on that, and
looking for real gold leaf (have to get some -- the fake stuff
is not as good) and having fun.
The landscape sits on the easel saying, "And?" And I explained
to that painting (silently) that this was small, and intimate and right for today.
Have a going into the studio day.
