I met Barb Flunker several years ago at one of the Washington Avenue art walks in St. Louis, Missouri. I got on her mailing list soon after that, and it’s been a pleasure following the progress of her work—both in terms of creativity and recognition.

Here is a link to her < Web > site and latest collection described as,

Inspired by road trips throughout the US, the Netherlands, Italy, France, Spain, Denmark and Germany, the dynamic paintings are sculptural, bold, rich in color and alluringly textural.

Her abstract work is fascinating to me. I love her use of color and incorporation of mixed-media, but the work in her current collection that is my favorite is an oil on canvas in neutral tones, called Milano.
