Welcome to Barb's Daily Creations! I have lofty ambitions - I want to post a new drawing or painting every day. The purpose of this, of course is to stay creative and on task artistically even when I may not feel the muses calling, prodding and pushing. I hope that you enjoy my humble efforts, because, ultimately, that is the purpose of creating art - to enrich lives - mine and yours. Thanks for visiting!
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year.

The Secret Garden
This is a small fantasy piece I did this afternoon on YUPO paper. I call it "The Secret Garden!" It is approximately 4" x 5" and will probably become a greeting card. It is amazing how many colors you can get from the three primaries - I used pthalo blue, cadmium yellow medium and quinacridone red - and all these colors are mixtures of those three. Although I know that you can get all colors from the primaries, I still find these many colors totally amazing when it happens!
