  • Artist showing at the Capitan Library through November 21st
    Barbara Cooper: artist statementA great starting point for a new hobby is a period of crisis in ones own life. In my case, it was when my first husband was      diagnosed with cancer and would not live long, his mother found a drawing/ pastel class to distract me. Thus began my love affair with art. I could begin working on a picture in the evening and before I looked up it was 2 a.m. in the morning! When my husband died I couldn’t seem to draw or dopastels any more. Then I became a teacher and there was no time to paint.I remarried and about forty years later my family bought me art supplies: an easel, oil paints and brushes, everything I would needto paint in oils. After retiring from teaching three years ago, I joineda Friday painting group with members that gave me advice. That fall I began studying with Daniel Edmondson online. To my surprise he wanted to see each painting as it was finished and he made videos explain-ing what was good about  each painting  and how I could improve.             Wow! I loved it all.I still try to never miss the Friday artgroup. Edmondson’s instruction advanced my skills immeasurably. Sunset SplashI seem to excel at paintingwater and rocks. I enjoy painting everything from landscapes to still lifes,flowers. I am enjoying thechallenge of painting animals and wildlife and capturing action in ranchscenes. My studio is very small. It’s the space between my dining room and kitchen next to the sink, and includes the counter space coffee pot and tea boxes.skylight and a nearby window provide plenty of light. Round Up (reference Julie Carter photo)Balloons at  White SandsMalpais and CactusBlack BearButterfly on Dahlia (reference photo by Krystyna Orzeł-Jowsa)FawnBarbara Cooper has many paintings she would ...
