VIEW IN MY ROOM
Siena, Italy clings to its Tuscan hillsides with structures that have stood shoulder-to-shoulder since the Middle Ages. The higgledy-piggledy nature of the town's layout becomes apparent from above. This view from the Facciatone (an observation walkway topping the never-completed expansion of the Duomo), also serves to remind one that this is still a living city. And young women sometimes take a break from hanging laundry to have a chat. As with most of my work, the painting is packed with details. There is limited surface texture which is bound by wood cribbing to produce a 1 5/8" panel. The four side returns are painted flat black to produce a finished look and add a bit more "pop" to the painting as it hangs on the wall. Hanging hardware is included.

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.
