Vibrant color and the play of light and shadow draw Barbara  to many of the subjects she likes to paint. However the joy is in the splash, drip and spatter of putting color on the paper and watching the amazing things that begin to develop.    Watercolor allows her to experience surprise and excitement with every painting.
