This week’s EBSQ Blogger of the Week is simply an amazing portrait artist. His use of vibrant colors creates an energy and style like no other. I’m honored he could take a few moments to chat with us today!
Who and where are you?
My name is Jason Barre and live just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio.
How did you get started art blogging?
About a year ago I joined EBSQ & Twitter where I found many artists posting their work on blogs which in turn inspired me to create one for myself and start sharing my own work.
Any tips for other EBSQ art bloggers?
Don’t be afraid to share your work before it is finished, many people really enjoy seeing a piece evolve from start to finish. It also shows how much time and effort goes into a piece which might be missed when you only post the finished work.
What’s your musical inspiration of choice when you’re working in your studio?
I listen to a variety of music while in the studio, CLR weekly podcasts, Old Time Radio dramas (exercises my visual imagination) and the random play button is frequently used on my iTunes collection. On occasion I turn off the music and just listen to the ambient sounds of the city with the windows open while I paint. There is a bar with live music that plays outside on the weekend that echoes through the valley and provides a ethereal audio backdrop.
What’s coming next from your easel?
Currently I’m working on a atmospheric interior landscape, after that I have a few colorful portraits planned.
Thank you Jason for being an EBSQ Blogger of the Week!
