  1. Barbara’s passing leaves a hole in my creative memory. I will miss her clear eyes and visions in wood.

    I loved Barbara .. She was my best artist friend I had martinis and oysters with her at her house a week earlier.
    May you rest in peace dearest Barbara

  3. Meg Paints says:

    Barbara Spring’s work brings maturity and humor together in a refreshing and provocative way. All of us who create or look at art, or both, gain inspiration and solace from her work. Thank you, Barbara, for your art, and, also, for the imaginative and generous family that succeeds you.
