I want you the viewer to experience the emotions that inspire me.
I choose subjects with poise, attitude and uniqueness.
I invite you to follow the storyline in each painting
and absorb the richness of the colors as they come alive on paper.
I have learned that there are no mistakes in painting only new adventures
to the process. Each painting is one step in my journey as an artist.
Enjoy the vibrant palette of my life!
Artfully ~ Barbara J. Mason
