The joy of flowers

 Flower Frenzy 

iPad Drawing 

8 x 10 inches 

Barbara Muir ©️ 2018

This was a magnificent day. I’m glad it was because trying to do my blog on my iPad and my phone is challenging indeed. I may have accidentally figured out how to single space but I’m not sure. At the moment my phone will only allow me to center the type, so forgive me.

The weather in Toronto today was superb. It was like the city desperately needed a break from this grim virus that has been driving us crazy for a year. So it was warm, leaves of flowers are coming up in gardens, and people were out in parks all over the city. It’s my hope that even though there were crowds in every green space, that people were keeping their distance

  We went down to the lake again. Colour of the blue of the lake was astounding and a gorgeous blue sky. We fed clouds of seagulls, screeching in exuberance above our heads as we threw them pieces of good bread. And one Swan came to be fed, swimming as we called it from a long way off. What a treat! We are so looking forward to the time when all of us are vaccinated across the country, and we can walk in the park, and not worry about trying to stay away from everyone.

This drawing seems to sum up the feeling of joy I had today in being in the park after finishing the work I’ve been doing this weekend. 

Have an enjoying the start of spring day.

Hi Evelyn,

Thank you so much. The strange thing is that my older iPad is much better to
draw on than my new one! Who knew. I did learn a lot from looking at the
work of other iPad artists. I love the colour and the punch of it, but still
prefer to work with real supplies, and canvas or paper.

Love your work.
