I try to bring the viewer into the scene to experience my interpretation of the essence of the place.
I paint with my heart, bringing the viewer with me on an exploration of essence and perception. I look at things anew, and am continuously studying to develop my skills, perception, composition and technical. I aim to portray more than the objects in the composition, but my understanding, and feelings or the essence of the place. “Painting forces me pause awhile, to allow my soul to embrace the beauty of nature. Winning recognition for my art is ‘icing on the cake’ because I enjoy the journey so much.”
As an artist, Barbara pushes herself to try new techniques and styles. She enjoys the comradery of other artists and the critique that comes from studying with local artists as well as internationally acclaimed artists.
