The excitement of light
Acrylic on cradled birch wood

Barbara Muir © 2019I remember my dear friend George Shane from the Don
Valley Art Club saying that you don't really know if
a painting is working until you've put it away for
Sometimes you know right away. Done is done, and
the feeling of exhiliration that comes from that can't be
beat. But sometimes months or even years after you
started a work that you don't know how to complete,
the answer comes out of the blue (or red, or yellow).
It was that way with this sunset cloud painting. The
changes I made were minor, but they made me happy. I
am pretty sure it's done. It is one of the views I might
get to see when we go to Nova Scotia. The astounding light
teaches me over and over how incredibly beautiful nature is.
Have a rethinking your work day.
