Walking past anchient cathedrals and the most treasured works of the old masters. And everywhere, every person has a story. No, it's not Fitzgerald or Hemingway. It is Richie Carter, whose uses plein-air painting to interact with people on a deeper, emotional level.

Landscape

BY BARBARA THOMAS
@ VOL 23 ON MAR 16, 2018

Barbara Thomas has been painting all her life. She first came to the East End of Long Island as a child in the 1960s, and has been painting here full time since the early 1980s. Barbara's work has always centered on land and nature, and changing seasons. Over her many years painting here, she has built a wide following as a plein air landscape painter, a garden, landscape, and house portraitist. More recently her work has expanded into installation, including video pieces, for which she composes and performs the music, which also center on nature themes. Barbara has been teaching painting here at the Parrish for nine years, as well as in New York City.
