Visualizing good health for all
(work in progress)
Acrylic and imitation gold leaf
on raised birch panel
6 x 6 inches
Barbara Muir © 2020I worked on this little painting today. I hope the
art store is open tomorrow because I'd like to get
some real gold leaf. I was inspired this morning by the
idea of creating a small painting expressing the wish for
good health all over the world. So this woman is wishing
peace and good health. I don't know who she is. I based her
on a photo of a friend, but instead she looks like my very tense,
but kind high school art teacher. Thank you Miss H. I never
saw you in a gold coat, but I think it would have suited you.
I do believe in the universe, and in the power of love. I went
on a short walk with a friend today -- we were 8 feet apart.
And there was almost no one out, but people across the street
would call out, share a laugh, and say, "stay healthy." Such
kindness, and so important.
Stay healthy, and stay happy. Our border between the
United States and Canada is closed as of today except
to commerce. That is a big deal. Canadians like to escape
to the U.S. for holidays, and vice versa. Nope.
Have a being healthy and happy day.
