Reflection from Barbara - To me creativity is reaction. It can be my personal reaction to a moment of beauty, to expressing joy or pain, or to sharing a story from my life. The inspiration is the INHALE, that gasp of “Ah-hah” breath in a new discovery and my creation is the EXHALE, the outpouring of soul that results in new work. I began my painting journey with acrylics and changed to watercolor. Recently, I have been working with acrylics and oil again. I do enjoy diversity as an artist and like to experiment with different media to keep myself motivated and fresh. Looking back on my path, the key elements of keeping going were generating new interest, excitement and hard work. My work continues to be a passionate journey and the art path I've traveled has sure been good to me.
