Featured Artist - Barbara Furlong

Lilacs & Butterfly #819 oil painting

I'd like to introduce you to a very talented artist named Barbara Furlong. She is a 4-star member on Design Style Guide. Barbara first started doing tole paintings many years ago, but soon found and fell in love with oil painting and has been using oils ever since.
Barbara Furlong not only paints beautiful paintings, but she also teaches painting classes and has done so for several years now. "Barbara took the Bob Ross certifications, times 3. After 360 hours of training she got certified in landscapes, classes from Joyce Ortner, Buck Paulson, Susan Jenkins and soon from Valerie Stewart. She also is certified 4 ways with Donna Dewberry and has taught for Donna in the past at the BEE Painting and Crafting Expo in Florida."
You can see in her paintings, how much she loves doing what she does. The beauty in her work, the soft color palette she chooses, I believe, comes from the heart of a romantic.
