Oil painting of cropped house
Barb Walker, “Take Me to the Sea Again,” oil on linen, 12 x 12 in., available through the artist.

Barb Walker: “I love pushing myself. Each of these three paintings are a result of a focus on values, amping up color, and letting the brushwork fly. I’m finding that when I stand in front of a blank canvas and hear myself say “I can’t paint that” in response to a scene or a photo reference that some of the most fun things happen! It’s just paint, so go for it! Study, learn, paint – do it!”
