By the Bridge - oil on canvas 20"x24"
paintings strike a fine balance between representation and painterly
artiface. Rooted firmly within the New England landscape tradition,
her scenes are places of both isolation and protection. It is not physical
topography but mans relation to the land which is the proper subject
of Barbara Goodspeeds art. Barbara is listed in Whos
Who in American Art, Whos Who in America, and in the Dictionary
of International Biography.
