25 years ago I began the Art Room. I had no idea it would be such a happy time for me and my students. It really has been fun. It's time for all of us to move on to the next adventure. My retirement will begin at our last class in May 2017. This gives us plenty of time to prepare for our final spectacular art show!
I will be fishing, gardening, spending time with my family and of course making art! I will also be thinking of you. All I can really say is Thank you.
With fond memories in my heart,
My last day in Clark's Summit will be May 23rd.
My last day in Fleetville will be May 24th (The show).
Impasto painting by Grace
Learning how to draw!
Many of my students like to draw with common graphite pencils. It can be quite relaxing. Here is one on my drawings depicting an old fisherman tying flies. His loyal cat is paying close attention and ready to cause some trouble. I like my art to tell a story...
This is a watercolor on a piece of cedar (the kind used for siding on houses). Prints are available at www.fishfanatic.etsy.com
It's time. Yes, it's time to take a ride in a pull toy. Everything looks different from down there.
This print fits perfectly into any standard 8X10 frame. Using acid free heavy natural Cougar cover stock and brilliant high quality inks, it will last a lifetime. Scanned at high resolution it looks exactly like the original (Shown here at much lower resolution.) Has an even white border, so matting is optional. This print would go well with other art by Barry Singer. Comes to you in a clear sleeve with sturdy packaging. Ready to ship immediately.
All prints are signed by Barry Singer.

The word IMPASTO is Italian in origin. It is a technique in painting where paint is laid on the surface very thickly, so that the brush or knife strokes are visible. Paint can be mixed right on the canvas. When dry, impasto provides texture, the paint appears to be coming out of the canvas.
I call this painting Octo Impasto. www.fishfanatic.etsy.com
Moby Dick is a classic fishing story. And the Captain Ahab in your life would love this pencil drawing stained in coffee. prints are available in my Etsy shop. www.fishfanatic.etsy.com
