The right light
Acrylic ink and acrylic on
cradled birch panel
6 x 6 inches
Barbara Muir © 2020I talked for a few minutes tonight to my dear artist friend
Flora Doehler in Nova Scotia, who introduced me to acrylic ink
a couple of summers ago, and I must say I love that medium.
I watched a video of Flora painting and drawing with
the ink the other day, and it inspired me.
I've been looking at these super cradled birch panels, and
wanting to paint on them. This wooden panel was waiting
for me to make what turned out to be a water scene. I need
to see and be near water. Just ask my sweet husband,
who frequently drives me to our favourite park that
features both Lake Ontario, and a scenic pond, home
to ducks, geese and swans.
This is called "The right light." It is always the right
light by water.
