Meet My Muse: Deirdre
Posted by Debbie Mumford
Ever wondered about your muse? I’ve known mine since I was a little girl. I’ve ignored her a lot, but I’ve always known who and what she was.
I met her when I was about nine…on a school field trip to the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She wasn’t part of any traveling collection, she was a piece of statuary from when the museum was a private (very posh) residence. I loved her so much, that when DH and I were first married I took him to Philbrook for the express purpose of meeting her.
But I’ve never had a decent picture of her…until the wonders of the Internet arrived. A quick google search and I FOUND HER! I immediately contacted the photographer, Bob Smith, and asked for permission to introduce her to my world. He graciously gave it. So here she is…my muse:
Here’s a more detailed photo, also courtesy of Mr. Smith:
I’ve always thought of her as joy personified. If you ever have the chance, visit Philbrook and get to know her in person. She’s worth it!
