Acrylic Ink, and acrylic pen sketch
5.5 x 8.5 inches
Barbara Muir © 2019Today actually was a Snowmageddon and schools closed in
Toronto for the second time in 8 days! Wow. I trudged through
the snow to a meeting and back, which was actually fun.
I dedicate tonight's play time sketch of tulips to Flora Doehler
who taught me to use Acrylic Ink. She didn't really teach
me, as you can see. I have a long way to go. But she inspired
me, because her work with ink was exactly what we need
in a dense snowfall. Brilliant colour, and sheer beauty.
Flora is one of the artists who has changed my life, over and
over. She wanted me to start this blog, at least a year before
I actually did, and she is always trying new things. I love that.
Thinking of her so far away in Nova Scotia in this the month
We are very different. She lives in the country, I'm a
city girl. She and her husband Larry Knox, grow their own
vegetables, and freeze and can their food for the winter.
Plus both are amazing cooks. I am not a cook, and garden
as simply as possible. But we connect massively on art.
Plus Flora and Larry are two of the kindest, funniest, most
supportive people I know. And we love spending time with
Have a loving your experimental friends day.
