Questions to the artist:
  • What makes paint and canvas exciting/interesting/challenging/ideal/or whatever else for you to work with?
    It's all blank, and that is the way thought is at times; and then it's filled with everything, and that is the way thought is, as well.
  • What makes the paintings shown here special to you?
    They are my favorites at this moment... LOL
  • Is there anything in particular you hope to accomplish with your work aside from simply expressing yourself in a given moment? Do you hope to inspire anything in particular in others?
    Only the feelings of wanting to be amused or excited or softened ................. also, there is a wonderful sigh that comes from people who like what an artist does, and that is worth the work and wondering and hoping and praying.
Artist Bio:
I am painting through a need to incorporate myself - alone, without the selves I have been given by all the manufactured forms of another's view of who they think Barbara Rose Guada is. As a young woman, the only self I was given was to become thinner and more beautiful - the Barbie Doll. Failing completely at this, I found other ways to achieve this "odd" status, one being writing and, later, another being painting. I am a new painter who has only been painting for five years. I am still adjusting the paints and textures for how this affects another's eye. I am thrilled to find that someone would actually want to buy what I have created.

My only statement so far is to be bold enough to be yourself and walk past the rest of everyone else's thing.
