Feature Artist December 2007 - Barbara Perrotti - Florida

It is with strong motivation that I continue onward, having the same enthusiasm with which I first began my career as an artist. My time is filled with painting and working with my students. I try to instill in my students a feeling of inspiration and a thirst for learning. More than ever, my focus in 2008 is leaning towards people and their individual environments. My need to establish a sense of place; and beyond that, a moment of quality is of the utmost importance.... constantly treating my subject matter as mearly a vehicle to further explore the elements of painting.
