Barbara Goodman

“ My landscapes are images of the air, light and natural forms that surround my house in Massachusetts. I am interested in the way edges are transformed in landscapes as influenced by mist, diffused light and sun. Each of these elements, experienced for a few moments, must be intensified and translated so that it satisfies the artist and is felt by the viewer.“
