Artwork by Toni Barreras Cobb
Toni, along with her mother Trudie, siblings, and even her sons Sky (or Schuyler, named for his great grandfather Ted) is enamored of dragons. This painting is entitled "Sky Dragon", and like many of her works, is done in acrylics on a 12" by 12" canvas panel.
Another favorite subject for Toni's work is sunsets and sailboats. One of the things that delights us all is her use of pointalism, especially in the mandala format, as major design elements.
This picture of a Purple Sunset is done in a different style and format. It is currently in the collection of Toni's niece Chrystine Gorman and her husband Kinsey Moore, who live in Huntsville, AL.
"Tsaile Peak" is Toni's rendition of one of Trudie's favorite subjects. Perhaps people who like to "treasure hunt" will be able to find a watercolor or two of this same volcanic plug elsewhere in the website.
Two new submissions by Toni, both in large (24" x 30" format) are titled "Full Moon on Snow" and "Full Moon on Water". Both are done in what she calls a "Mosaicy" style, though painted in acrylic.
Toni was given a challenge to do a rendition of a view of the planet Jupiter from an astronomical photograph. Here is the impressive result!
