You will feel her passion for the woodlands we all live in here next to our wonderful Cuyahoga Valley National Park. In addition to viewing Barbara's Wildlife paintings, this show will also feature her newest direction into the realm of 3-D art ... Gourds. These gourds continue with the same subjects she loves doing in her 2-D paintings. However, they contain line drawing done with a Wood Burning tool, and sculpting done with Dremel Tools. Finally, she finishes them off with colored pencil and coats of UV protecting clear acrylic spray to seal her art permanently on the surface of these gourds.
