"BEEDEE EYE GALLERY " Artwork by Barbara Bell...

Artist directory :: "BEEDEE EYE GALLERY " Artwork by Barbara Bell Dubovsky...

Hand pieced and hand quilted antique quilt purchased at a Texas antique shop. Very heavily quilted throughout the quilt. 1/4"- 1/2" spacing between lines of quilting. Made circa 1910 or older. The date is sometimes determined by the fabrics in a quilt and some of the fabrics in this one could be from the late 1800's. "Lancaster blue consists of a light-blue print over a dark-blue background. This color was popular on antique quilts from 1860 to 1880" according Melissa King in How to Tell if a Quilt Is Vintage or Antique (SF Gate). In fair condition with just a few worn areas. Maker unknown.

Pinwheels circa 1910

Every Quilt Has a Story

Something New
I will be trying 3D art for the first time. This could lead to ceramics, or sculpture of all kinds!

Favorite artists
It's interesting to browse online galleries and watch YouTube videos created by other artists. My favorite watercolor artists are Joseph Raffael, Birgit O'Connor, Leslie Redhead, and Shirley Trevena.

Endless Possibility
I am bursting with inspiration! I have a long waiting list of paintings to be done. Watercolor has become an obsession. I can paint for 8 hour stretches and wish I could do more.

I've surprised myself. Didn't think I would actually like painting with watercolors. It's an amazingly versatile medium. Hoping to get better at this with every attempt. I now do one large piece per week.

Local Art Venues
It seems that municipalities are all getting into the act! Art attracts crowds and crowds eat, spend money, etc. etc. Good for the local economy!
