Barbara's work has been an inspiration to me for my entire life. She introduced me to shading at the tinder age of 3 years when she would sit on the floor and color with me. More than 50 years later, I am still looking to her for painting tips and the courage to use color. I am blessed to be a part of her life and proud to have a sister with boundless talent.
