Happy Birthday: Barbara Ernst Prey

Barbara Ernst Prey is an American painter born on April 17th.

Prey's paintings have been commissioned by NASA, MASS MoCA and The White House. She works in oils but is also well known for producing the largest watercolor painting at 8' x 15'. 

My favorite thing about her paintings is how she handles light and shadows. The shadows are a beautiful balance of warm and cool.

"I am an advocate for the arts and I strongly believe, as a visual artist, that government has a role in supporting the arts, which is vital to our nation and humanity....American Art is not monolithic, and there’s such a variety of disciplines, ideas, and voices that the world responds to."~Barbara Ernst Prey
