I feel like I need to put a disclaimer about who I am--or rather, who I am not. You might think my name is rather unique but there are several of us sharing the same name. Recently I noticed Bing had a block of "images of Darla Bostick." Just to be clear, I'm not the one pictured in the police line up and I do NOT have a facebook account!
YOU ARE INVITED TO DARLA'S 2018 ART ADVENTURE.
This year we visit 2 countries--Copenhagen, Denmark then Hamburg and Berlin, Germany. It is a very small group and spaces are filling now...
Each year a group accompanies me for my Art Adventure Abroad. Each year is somewhere new. The past 3 years we visited Spain, Portugal and Ireland. During June and July of 2018 we are doubling up on countries and will explore Copenhagen, Denmark and Berlin, Germany. If you are interested let me know right away. Reservations are well underway. Non-artists/spouses are welcome to come along!
For pics of past 3 Art Adventures Abroad trips to Spain, Portugal and Ireland, go to the Art Adventures Abroad tab. Details are posted there for the 2018 trip in June/July to Denmark, Germany and 2019 France!
The October watercolor workshop traditionally fills so this year a second workshop is available in June (we will use a new media each day!). The Ghost Ranch Tab above has more information.
Here are some of my works from my Hobby Lobby class in Denton, TX--spending time with my grandson has interrupted classes. When there is enough interest, I will resume classes...let me know if you are interested.
On page 29 of Cheap Joe's Art Stuff 30th Anniversary Reference Catalog you will see my "Warriors of Xian, China" watercolor.

I'm included in the Best of Worldwide Artists, Vol 1
I am one of 124 artists from 21 countries chosen by Kennedy Publishing. Three of my images were chosen: "Sweet Dreams", "Rainbow Agave" and "Peony in Pink, Lintao, China" for a 2-page spread. The 3 paintings are pictured below.
I am included in the Zentangle 9: Color with Mixed Media Book
This is what happens once you begin doing Zentangle, a meditative style of graphic design. This particular image began as a watercolor I painted in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico titled "Cabo Hibiscus." Several years later, I improved it with Zentangle and it is now "Tangled Hibiscus." It is one of two of my paintings included in Suzanne McNeill's book, "Zentangle 9."
My turtle photograph was chosen by Norie Sato as a reference for one mosaic column installed as part of the Chisholm Trail Parkway in the Fort Worth North Texas Tollway Authority public art project. Mosaics were made by Franz Mayer Studio in Germany. Each column is 2' diameter x 13' tall. The columns crossing the Trinity Riverway focus on water creatures and plants in that area.
