Painting is a passion that Betty has has enjoyed all her life.

“I paint to express and record my feelings about places (usually historic) that I have visited throughout my travels. I try to express a passion for beauty in my landscapes. The rugged, gnarled tree is especially compelling in its form and shape. I love the intricate patterns formed by the bark on various species of trees. Different textures in landscapes are beautiful–an old bridge with weather-worn planks–huge cracked boulders with vegetation growing out of the cracks–weeds (or wildflowers growing in a ditch beside the road. I record, through painting, how it feels to view these things. I believe art is the emotional expression of the artist’s soul, his or her life experiences taking form via the media of the artist’s choice.
