THOUGHTS FROM BARB
The woods and wildflower fields of my childhood still live in my memories and give rise to the paintings I do.
Nature, unspoiled by human intervention, wild things growing where they must, give me endless inspiration and material for my landscape art.
I feel close to the earth, her cycles and natural designs.
Painting sandstone formations, my “Earthpatterns” series, helps to feed my ongoing fascination with Nature's abstract forms, fulfills my need to “sculpt” a painting. I marvel at the power of the elements which have created unbelievable vistas along the shores of the Pacific Ocean.
I am a realist in life and in my work, being guided by Henry David Thoreau's words in “Walden”:
“The more the painter invents the further he takes us from the world which actually exists; and to that extent he may even encourage us in the alienation from the real.”
All my works are originals, each one of a kind.
