VIEW IN MY ROOM
I began the pandemic quarantine season with a couple of paintings that fit into my usual pattern - an attempt to recapture some "Grand Tour" impressions from my travels. After all these months, my perspective seems to have shifted. Here is a perhaps quieter, less attention-grabbing scene from North Main Street in sleepy Schulenburg, Texas. The street is, of course, void of life. The quarantining continues. Even as we close in on the holiday season. The painting has a small amount of texture. The side returns on the wood panel are painted flat black.

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.
