"When I make a painting, I’m hoping for serendipity to take place: the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.  I paint with layers of acrylic paint and in between the layers impose a template I have created of a dancing or moving image-  I continue to layer the paint in the foreground and the background until the colors harmonize and the page emerges in an unexpected way." -Barbi.
