Romance blossoms in the charming florals, cottages, terraces and teapots of Barbara Mock’s lush artwork. An American Impressionist, Mock possesses an enduring passion for art that began in elementary school. Her oil paintings have rich, dreamy designs of a tranquil, idealized world rendered in muted colors and quiet contrasts. Delicate patterns balance beautifully with her interplay of wispy and dramatic brushstrokes. Mock’s art has given her a heightened sense of awareness about the world around her, and an attunement to all of its subtleties that she sensitively depicts.
