“Practice what you know, and it will help to make clear what now you do not know.”
“Without atmosphere a painting is nothing.”
—Rembrandt, Dutch Artist
“Colour is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.”
—Claude Monet, French Artist
“I believe painting is about the balance of the mind as it is in life, so it is in painting.
Painting fills ‘the space in between’ a great passion for life, music and nature.”
—Barbara’s Artist Statement
“Barbara’s extensive travel background, combined with her natural creative talents, love of colour and life-long interest in art, have culminated in unique and expressive paintings that engage the viewer on many levels.”
“Arnold’s works are abstract in design and explore the interplay between emotion, energy and the places that she experienced. . . Her works are an explosion of texture and intense color generating an organic energy and tension that flow across wood panels or canvas – resulting in a sense of harmony in the series."
“Barbara is an energetic artist who loves to put herself fully into her art pieces. . . . She shows courage and a passionate, experimental mind, which is great for any artist!
