Young Man Reading
Acrylic on canvas
30 x 30 inches
Barbara Muir ©I found this painting in one of many stacks of work
around the house, and I really love it. It isn't wired, and
probably was never shown. One of my blog and Facebook
friends Janet Vanderhoof is working hard at painting in a loose
style, and I love what she is doing. I tend to rocket between loose
and highly descriptive, but love the times when I am more free
with my paint.
I have been lucky for my entire artistic life to have a super
supportive family. This painting is of my son Sam who
posed for me many times during his late teens when he
was living at home and a ready subject. Christopher,
my son, my daughter-in-law Megan, Steven, my husband
and our various animals have all posed. And I am grateful
for them. Big time.
Have a loving what you do day.
