Winter Journey, Barbara Mink

Winter Journey explores the beauty of Ithaca in winter’s black, white, and shades in between. Works range from by 4x5 foot canvases to smaller framed works on paper, all in ink or acrylic. The name is a nod to Schubert’s wonderful song cycle, which epitomizes to me the beauty that can be found in the season’s cold and stark winter landscape.

"I started painting one day in January, 1998, having woken up with an irresistible urge to do something I had not done since I was a child. Starting with water colors and botanical illustration, I moved to oil still life and landscapes, then to acrylic and ink abstracts. This show is part of my own journey that started in winter almost 20 years ago."

Resilient Nature

“My most recent paintings depict oversized flowers and intertwining stems on a soothing, sometimes pulsing, background. I am fascinated by interweaving stems, branches, and even root systems in my garden, a tangled world that often goes unnoticed.”
