You need To Die, To Start Living . . . Again!


“ Have some fun. Loosen up a bit. Enjoy life!


We do not have to be so somber and serious. We do not have to be so reflective, so critical, so bound up within ourselves and the rigid parameters others, and often ourselves, have placed around us.


This is life. Enter into it. Participate. Experiment. Take a risk. Don't be fearful or afraid.“


– Melody Beattie


Allow yourself to be alive and human. Live the dream. Enjoy the journey.


This sounds so good in theory. The things we take for granted in our youth – they say this child is still in us as we get older?

Hello! What is your name?


WHAT NEW - barrys studio

  • Various payment options have been added to the gallery for sales of paintings and giclees.

  • Gallery has also been split into two albums: my latest fine-art section, and old illustrative works.

  • I’ve started videoing my painting sessions to help express and monitor my overall artistic innovative statement and mission.

Hope you enjoy!



Various Perspectives

Today’s blog is about taking down some notes on various perspectives that are used in drawing pictures and underlining paintings. One or more of these techniques can be used in prep work for creating a drawing or painting composition.

I will be highlighting the following perspective techniques:
linear perspective, one-point perspective, two-point perspective, three-point perspective, anamorphosis, and curvilinear. . .




The Storm

I wish a storm would come and blow this shit away,

or a bomb to burn the towns and scour the seas.


I wish we wouldn't think so much about what to do in society,

but instead give, or leave society when gone.


For these demons paralyze your soul in knowing who you are,

how you feel,

what gifts your born with,

and why you are here.


We come in with best intentions,

but addictions get the best of us.

Did Dionysus have it right?




Michelangelo Buonarroti

Michelangelo had such repellent body odor that his assistants couldn't stand working for him . . . More


Final Word

What is the real point to life?  Faith and Grace are such hard words to understand and master. In the end all we really have is our gut instinct.
