Black Butte Ranch Lodge
Barbara Slater is the featured artist thru mid-December. She has been creating oil paintings for the past four decades and is well known for her portraits of horses, pets, chickens and cows that come to life on canvas, like her oil painting Lil’ big Foot.
She is also known for her commission work and enjoys working with clients who wish to have their animals painted. Her life-like images portray warmth, and her landscapes and floral still life portraits are refreshing and dramatic.
She says, “I paint what I love. I try to paint passionate paintings…. not just workable paintings, I feel a heart-felt connection to my work. Barbara is a member of the Oil Painters of America, California Art Club, and locally in Bend, the High Desert Art League.
