RECENTLY SOLD / Owned by Collectors

Here are many (not all) of my paintings art collectors and art enthusiasts have brought into their lives and collections over the past couple of decades (and counting) from my painting diary. A few commission works too, but not all herein. Since 1998 I have been painting originals only, mostly in acrylic, of landscapes, of travel and interest, floral beauty, abstract, tropical....a diary of my life depicted in pictures rather than words. I paint one-of-a-kind, various sizes, quality works of fine art. Whether you are a seasoned collector or new to collecting, feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Be sure to click on the Gallery link drop-down listing above to view paintings available for sale and collection. For paintings already sold on this page, if you see one that you really like, commission work is welcome. I can create something similar, especially for you. Contact me here. Originals-Only (no prints) since 1998, I intend to remain authentic in my work. - Barbara Simpson

My Greatest Love (Tulips)

from my Floral Rainbow Collection, 24"x36", acrylic/satin varnish, owned by new collectors (AUGUST 2019), Ontario Canada.

This painting has been deemed popular and cherished among many people since I painted it in 2009. "My Greatest Love" is one of a series of paintings in my 'Floral Rainbow' collection that appeared in a solo-exhibition at the Brockville Arts Centre in 2009. It was also on an episode of The Wire (TV-Cogeco) during an interview I had about my solo-exhibition. The painting was part of my study of the science of colour as well. While this painting was painted with a feeling of 'great love', it's really important to me that not only do I just paint but that I learn and study all I can about what I am painting. Additionally, with the incredible symbolism of the painting, denoting nobility and great love, this painting will now be going to a new loving home in Ontario! They have been eyeing this painting for quite some time and, now, it is very fitting because they recently celebrated their wedding anniversary! How lovely and Happy Anniversary!! Thank you and Congratulations to the new art collectors in my Art World acquiring "My Greatest Love (Tulips)" for their home. I am so happy for this couple!!

Sunset Over Charleston Lake
10"x20"x1.5", acrylic/satin gloss on gallery-wrapped canvas, unframed. Owned by new art collector (JULY 2019), Niagara Region, Ontario.

The spectacular scene you see to the left is a beautiful lake I have had the pleasure of enjoying with my family and a few friends. Being raised on a beautiful lake (Georgian Bay!!!) it is any wonder gravitating to such locales and special to me. There is amazing fishing and sailing is quite amazing too, especially with sunsets as pretty as these! My painting style on this one is my rendition of Emily Carr meets Tom Thomson; marrying their styles together. Painting completed in 2017. Thank you and Congratulations to this new Ontario Collector!

As an artist, a lover of colour and life influencing my artwork, one of my all-time favourite quotes:

"In our life there is a single colour, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the colour of love." - Marc Chagall (1887 - 1985)
