“The Oyster Catchers “ by Barbara Hopkins is a framed 24” x 24” acrylic on canvas just perfect for a beach cottage.
Hopkins’s figurative pieces are fueled by the visual images captured by her mind’s eye and camera during long beach walks. These orange beaked sea birds battled a northeast wind to land and hunker down at surf’s edge. Hopkins says she has to have “been there” to render a painting that has emotion. Can’t you feel the hunching down of the already settled birds and the force of the wind against the bird coming in for a landing?
