Title: The Art of June Flowers
Artist: Barbara Scharpf
Barbara is an impasto painter from Middleton, WI. Her paintings vary in size and are all painted/sculpted with acrylic paint onto wooden canvases, which her husband, Ben, crafts for her. Barbara is very inspired by the changing of the seasons, which is evident in her nature and floral themed works. Her paintings encompass aspects from all seasons: bouquets of spring flowers, fields of wildflowers and sunflowers, fall trees, and holiday-themed pieces.
