After graduating from Duke University and while teaching Latin in the Virginia public school system, Barbara began to pursue her real passion…art. Barbara enjoys painting the Florida scenes she has come to know and love, but she also paints portraits as well. Working in oil, watercolor, pastels and mixed media, she studied with such nationally known teachers as John Brady, Florence Thomas, Ray Yoder and Charles McCurry of the Ringling School of Art.
In the summer of 1978, she studied painting and drawing at the Slade School of Art in London. Barbara is a signature member of the American Impressionist Society, and she has received numerous awards. “In the business of everyday life, logic often dominates. I believe that art should hint at the mystery that underpins all of life. It should speak the language of the heart. To paint is to co-create with God.” Here is a link to the rest of her products.

CRACKER COUNTRY - BMS205P
This pastel was done en plein air at Hackberry Hammock, a private property west of Fort Pierce, Fl.
Two dear friends and I made a painting trip to North Carolina last spring. There were so many compelling subjects, but this old milk can was calling to me. I have to admit that I moved it from it's original location to a more "painterly" place.
This pastel was accepted into the Pastel Society of the Southeast's show several years ago and was exhibited at the Oglethorpe Museum in Atlanta. It was done on a gesso panel with a sanded surface and under-painted with a thin wash of oils.
