Paintings by Barbara Buer
|The exceptional color of one special flower or the
interesting shadows cast by the intricate cuts in a crystal vase are all it takes to
entice me into another painting.
Barbara Buers love of flowers began as a child, growing up with a father who was a floral designer. She found herself following his footsteps and landed a position in a beautiful garden in southern England. It was there that she realized her passion was for painting flowers, not arranging them.
Buer paints in both watercolor and oil. (The two mediums are so completely different that sometimes she wonders how she can love them equally.) Through both, she portrays the world we see in our daily lives. Whenever possible, Buer prefers to see the beauty in it.
