Description The Venetian island of Burono, where they make lace, is a magical place. All the buildings are painted in bright colors. Walking by this pink house I saw the light coming through the archway, with the cat sitting in the sun and the lagoon in the background.
Barbara Busenbark, Hampton Falls, NH. Member Since October 2010 Artist Statement I am a painter. While New England is my home, and most of my paintings reflect that, I also enjoy traveling and painting different places. The joy of painting is a cycle of give and take for me. While I paint I am fully immersed, consumed and focused in the act of painting. It is a release from which I emerge with a sense of personal growth and expression, always reaching and learning. It is also a means of communication, sharing how I see the world with others. Also feeding the hunger to create is how my work is received. When people look at my work and are impacted by it in a way that brings joy and contentment the cycle is both completed and renewed to start again. With that, the vibrant colors of my paintings are alive, I am alive.
