About The Artwork

East of Albuquerque and lying just beyond Sandia Mountain peaks, Highway 14 (called the "Turquoise Trail") winds its way north of I-40 to Madrid and on to Santa Fe. Built in the 1830's, this Catholic mission church was built to serve the boomtown that emerged after gold was discovered in the area in 1825. The gold disappeared and eventually the church was abandoned for 20 years, but now is active again with weekly services. The name of this mission suggested that I make sure that the churchyard feature some of the NM birdlife that we associate with St. Francis' preaching. The painting is on cradled wood panel and sides are painted flat black to allow the painting to "pop" on your walls without the need to frame.

Barry reports that his earliest memories are of drawing. Paint followed only a few years later. Eventually the enjoyment of producing art in two dimensions melded with other academic strengths to led to a profession in architecture where design was pushed into the third dimension. Even then, the process of creating a building relied on sketches, drawings, and renderings. After growing up in South Arkansas, getting his degree and beginning his profession in Houston, Barry and his family relocated to North Carolina for 27 years. in 1983, the elastic snapped and they are back in Houston where Barry oversaw construction and helped plan for facilities at one of the country's largest community colleges until his retirement in September 2023. Beyond work, Barry has always enjoyed travel and his paintings reflect images that have caught his imagination along the way. While the paintings are based on reality, Barry's work makes countless additions and adjustments to better convey both reality and spirit of the subjects. Post-retirement, Barry is excited to be able to spend much more time traveling and producing new paintings.
