Aspens by Barbi Dalton

Aspens by Barbi Dalton

I’m excited to introduce my new body of work, especially for my solo exhibit at The North Carolina Crafts Gallery located at 212 West Main Street Carrboro, NC 27510. The show will be up from Sept. 1st- Sept. 30th. The opening reception is during the Second Friday Art Walk Sept. 9th, 6:00-9:00.

The theme for the show is: From The Beach to The Mountains ~ New Works by Barbi Dalton. Here’s why I am so enthusiastic about this work…

I’m am drawn to paint images that stimulate the senses and are deeply rooted in nature. I strive to transform everyday scenes into dynamic affirmations of life” . I enjoy an alla prima style of painting ( painting directly on canvas) with the use of bold brush strokes and the thick blending of rich colors enabling me to freely express the beauty of my surroundings.

I’ve fallen in love with the coastal scenes, the atmosphere of beautiful clouds, trees, water and the quaint coastal scenes. A recent trip to the  mountains has inspired me to paint the  aspen trees with the magical light that shimmers amongst the vistas. Several of my pieces are completed on large canvases, representing the awe and splendor of our Creator’s majesty.
