BC Marsh #2 by Barbara Haviland

How did you get started art blogging?

I really don’t remember when I started blogging but, I thought it would be good to post my paintings and get some sales.

Alligator by Barbara Haviland

Any tips for other EBSQ art bloggers?

I think the best thing is to post daily and I have been posting every day for almost 2 years.

Dena Tractor by Barbara Haviland

What’s your musical inspiration of choice when you’re working in your studio?

I listen to all kinds of music and find that I work best when I am alone. I paint every single day and love doing that.

Bayou Fire by Barbara Haviland

What’s coming next from your easel?

Right now I am working on a triptych Bayou landscape. Each panel is 17″x40″ and it is very large. I am also working on some birds. I always work on several pieces. Oh, I have some elk too that is almost finished.
