Every day Barbara looks forward to creating art that will convey the same sense of beauty to the viewer that inspired the artist. She approaches her canvas with a concept and allows her mind, body and the inspiration found in her faith in God to bring the concept to fruition. Barbara's art may include energetic brushwork, palette knife work, soft passages of blended paint or a heavy build-up of paint. She strives for just enough variety without too much unity so as to capture the viewer’s attention.
The new series is called "Soundtracks." Painting to music has always been integral to my work. I need the music to clear my mind - to make room for my thoughts and emotions to express themselves. By combining my two great loves of music and painting, I am able to concentrate and lose myself in the moment. I decided to paint to music I listen to this time, instead of using it as background. Therefore each painting is a direct result of an actual soundtrack I listened to while painting.
