Margaret Bobb Blogs

Read blog posts created by Margaret Bobb.

As a New Orleans, Louisiana native, Margaret experienced a vibrant arts community in her formative years.   She began a love-affair with pencil drawing at an early age, which grew into a passion for painting during her teen years.   The art journey of MBobb has led her to becoming an Impressionistic Colorist.   With the modern miracles of photography and technology, she has found that her passion has changed from recording life to enjoying the sheer act of pushing, pulling, dropping, or scraping paint onto a surface.   She 'sees' paintings in her mind everywhere she goes, whether in...more

Colorado Flood of 2013

September 26th, 2013

I haven't been on FAA much lately. Oh, here and there, sorta hit and miss, but I have not spent a lot of time on it... Besides this being a normally busy time of year for me, the flood along the Front Range here in Colorado has really taken its tol... 

My Stendhal Syndrome Experience

January 29th, 2013

Not long ago, Robert Genn, of the Twice Weekly Art Letters, wrote about something I had never heard of before. As I read the description, I felt I had an experience related to what he was describing. Recently, the Denver Art Museum had an outst... 

Emotions We Feel as We Paint

September 5th, 2012

I have read that one's emotions while painting really influence the outcome of one's work. I believe this to be true. I am generally in a good mood when I paint, because it is one of my favorite activities. I love God's creation, and I love paintin... 

Time Management

August 21st, 2012

Time management...I still stink at it. Don't get me wrong--I get a LOT of things done...but I know I could still improve. I just read this blog and felt it worthy of sharing. Hope it helps you!  

Signing your painting

March 15th, 2012

I am wondering how you all feel about signatures. Is your signature a work of art in itself? Do you work hard on it, or do you just "dash it down" in an artistic manner? Do you strive to make it always the same, or is "close" good enough? When... 

I am currently participating in this wonderful show of work produced either on site at Lillian Kennedy's Art Workshop in NYC, spring 2011, or from photos we took while there. There are seven artists included in the show: Lillian Kennedy (our fearle... 

I'm taking a break from frantically working on my 2012 Sketchbook Tour submission. I signed up for it rather late, but I figured I had plenty of time to get the little sketchbook finished before the Jan 31, 2012 deadline. It turns out that I did no... 

Denver Plein Air Fest 2011

August 28th, 2011

I can hardly believe it's been a year since I last painted in Denver for the festival...WOW! I had an awesome experience last year. I was just hoping and praying that I would have a piece juried into that show. I submitted four pieces, and one mad...

Discounts! ...Everyone LOVES to get a bargain! I know I do...so today I decided to give a discount on items purchased through this website. What do you think of discounts? I'd love to know.... 

The most important thing I learned this year is that I donít spend enough time actually painting in my studio. Oh, I do all sorts of art-related things, which makes me feel like Iím working on art, and I guess I am. But Iíve realized that ... 

My first EVER blog

December 27th, 2010

July 15, 2010...My first EVER blog will quickly get to the point....I was born in an artsy place...New Orleans, Louisiana. And, I discovered that besides being surrounded in an environment filled with art, that I also have art in my blood--I'm ... 

I guess I was mistaken, for here I find myself blogging again. Wow...I have had an intense four weeks of painting... and not only painting, but painting plein-air! Prior to the past four weeks, I had been plein-air painting several times. I quick...
