Barbara Churchley’s paintings reflect her personal connection with the western landscape she lives in. Her paintings in pastel and oil are interpretive and expressive. Her passion for the outdoors has taken her to the summit of all 53 ranked 14,000’ peaks in Colorado and a few other unranked ones for fun. She has explored the landscape “up close and personal” through multiple marathons, hikes, and backpack trips. Churchley finds inspiration painting “en plein air” in western Colorado to the far corners of the world, pursuing her other passion of traveling. .
