BARBARA K SPRAUL
Painting is my way of transmitting the joy of life and beauty I experience in the world.
I work mostly in oil with an emphasis on texture and expressive color variations. In painting with the pallet knife I intensify the spontaneity and boldness of the art work.
The use of strong and vibrant colors influences the mood of the viewer.
Inspired by the impressionist painters, I focus mostly on capturing a feeling or an atmosphere rather than creating a realistic rendition of a subject. In approaching each artwork differently I always seek new ways to challenge myself.
Born and raised in Germany, I had an early profound love for art.
I feel a deep emotional fulfillment and pleasure when I paint. I am very thankful that by creating unique peaceful paintings it is possible to spread joy and lift the spirits of the viewers.
