Going to the show

Cloud Magic
Acrylic on canvas
4 x 6 feet

This painting -- Cloud Magic -- is one of my favourites.
Its history so far is dramatic to say the least.  I'd just begun
painting it, and it was moving along happily when I
fell and broke my wrist.  Everyone said -- "oh well it was
your left hand and you paint with your right." But I needed
someone to open tubes, lift my canvasses.  I was very lucky
to have Steven, my sweet husband, to help me. It is a big

Last year Cloud Magic showed in two Water for Life shows
curated by Antoine Gaber and Angelina Herrera aimed at raising
consciousness about saving the world's water, and getting clean
water to all communities.  The painting appeared in the Niagara
Falls History Museum, and in Arta Gallery in Toronto.

In September it is going to be in the Encounter exhibition at
the Heliconian Club on Hazelton Avenue in Yorkville, Toronto.

The painting's size makes it hard to photograph, but today
Steven and I got a decent photo of this large work.

So please be ready to come and see it early in September.

Have a loving art shows day

Another beauty! Fingers crossed that it might go to a new home. I am surprised it hasn’t yet actually! Love your waterscapes, Barbara!

Hi Liza,

Thank you so much. I hope so too. It is big, and of course more expensive. So these are all considerations for a buyer. I'd
like to see it on a white wall in a big office space somewhere. Let's envision that! Thank you so much again. You've made my day!
