Welcome to Barb's Blog.
I will post weekly (or nearly) some of my opinions, insights, ideas, and adventures about art, travel, plein aire, pastel, and whatever's happening. Join me, feel free to add comments, follow along as I paint and write and explore
Living the Life
Saturday Evening, June 23, at 6 P.M. there will be an Artist's Reception at the Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center at 195 W. Main Street in Cedaredge, Colorado, for Barbara Torke and Daphna Russell. Their show Living the Life, will be at the new Art Center through July. They are honored to have this opportunity, and the community is so lucky to have this new venue. A gorgeous job of restoring and transforming the building. It is truly a treasure.
The reception is by invitation. Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend. I will put you on the list. I will also have the list if you forget. Otherwise - print out the card. I really hope to see you there.
In January I painted a sky a day. It was from an idea in Pastel Journal. What a great idea. In February I did a bird a day. March got out of hand but I did quite a few trees. When I get back from Italy I will try another month idea.
Painting a little every day - even if it is a short study, or a small ATC card (artist trading card at 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 .) it is amazing at the difference it makes in skills, confidence, technique and most of all, pleasure. Try it. Pick a subject, medium, idea, project and do a piece every day. It is habit forming and inspiring.
Ice Breaking is the children's book Kyle Torke and Barbara Torke have, written, illustrated and published. This collaboration is being published, by Loving Healing Press, and is available in hardcover and soft-cover from Amazon.
we're really excited by the way the book turned out, and feel we have a publisher who wants the best for kids and their support systems. I couldn't be happier.
