Welcome to Barbara's "art" blog. I create artworks that range from small to large, from somewhat eerie to very joyous. Most of my works come straight from my imagination; I use my experiences and filter them through my brain. Soometimes I try to sit back and watch my hands create, and enjoy the process almost as a spectator. Eventually, though, my more technical side comes out to correct the spontaneous one, and the two compromise.

An avatar for Barbara

This is an avatar that I  doctored up in Photoshop. It is still pretty flattering. But avatars are generally blemish and wrinkle-free; I had to add some details.
