Barbara Muir © 2020Last year I joined the oldest women's art club in Canada
-- the Heliconian Club -- a wonderful decision. I've met such
super people, and been in some amazing shows. I have been
lucky to be able to show my large works in the club's
beautiful space on Hazelton Ave. I love working large,
and wish I had a studio space (in my home) that would let me go
I also enjoy working smaller. This little painting was
inspired by a photo of the overwhelming abundance of
flowers in my house at the end of summer. In fact my kitchen
looks that way now with miraculous white double lilies,
a late blooming amaryllis, gorgeous red tulips, and a cabbage
rose in full bloom.
But in summer, it's all local, from my garden and a wonderful
gardener who sells at the Brickworks market.
Whatever size I'm working in, I'm aware that the creative life
is a gift.
Have a loving what you do day.
