"Where I have been and where I am going is always just an adventure away." - Barbara Simpson

Water and Landscapes

Since I was born I was exposed to a life of travel. It was inevitable that this would be the wanderlust that would strengthen my desire to explore and learn from life and travel more. It's a pretty big world out there and I have hardly touched the surface. But for all the places I have been and where I am going, I am delighted to record in my painting diary these truly remarkable places I have had the pleasure of enjoying. I am grateful to both of my parents too for such abundant opportunities and to definitely experience each location we have lived.  And now, Mom watching from Heaven above, she knows (still) I continue on my faithful path.  After leaving home many years ago, I moved much and many adventures succeeded, and together with my amazing man who loves travel as much as I do. Travel is always on the forefront, and for me, it is just a painting away adding to my painting diary. One might even say that (most days) I have the travel bug, seeking new adventure, far away, or even a tourist in my own hometown! 

On this page, catch a glimpse of some of the breathtaking regions in which I have had the pleasure of living and or have otherwise visited. Each is a place in time documented in history recorded in my painting diary.  I am certain another adventure is just around the corner so be sure to visit again as I am sure to capture more, in paint!
