These are frighteningly good! Time to start stdnyiug my dog...and my daughter is getting a cat've set a high bar!What I really appreciate is you've managed to retain the sense of line while still working in values by massing in the forms. And the drawings are quite fresh not labored at all!

Barbara, your work is just breathtaking. I love the forsythia, the fruit, and other fruit still life pieces. Thank you for your contribution to our world.

I just ran across your work on artist ID and I am in awe. I am a graphic artist turned fine artist and I'm loving pastels! But your pieces are like nothing I've seen. I could not believe the attention to detail and realism in your pastels...I would love to be able to ask a few questions about the mediums and supports you use...please contact me if that's a possibility. I know you've heard this many times, but your work is amazing!!

It was a pleasure meeting you at Art on the Bank in Groton yesterday, and viewing you incredible work! I was drawn to "Generations"? I think that was the title. It was so simple and yet profoundly dramatic. Now I have to figure out how to get the money to start purchasing!

When I first viewed your work, I thought I was viewing a photograph until I read that you work in pastel. Your pieces are amazing!

I continually find your work both lovely and amazing. I was very impressed with the detail and beauty of the piece you entered in our Agawam Art Show. I am now even more impressed with your other pieces. Beautiful, Barbara, just beautiful!

It's been two years since I moved from NY to Texas. Tonight I was reading again the Pastel Journal article about your award winning painting. Your work continues to amaze is beautiful. I miss the commeradie of the CT pastel society. Am working and teaching here...and finally getting back into competitions. It was a difficult move. Anyway...just wanted to say hello, and congratulations on your award. Best always, Angalee DeForest

"Blue, Green, and Gold" is breathtaking. Your awareness of fabrics as a sensory extension is almost a 6th sense.
