Acrylic and Mixed Media Paintings and Charcoal Drawings by Barbara Swindin
Aiguille Verte and Les Droites
Exhibition dates: 10th September - 10th December 2019
Having attempted to climb all the Alpine Fourthousanders and not quite achieved that goal, Barbara wrote her book, All But One, and simultaneously started to paint all these mountains and some of the neighbouring peaks. She has relied upon her memories, aided by photographs taken by her late husband, Les Swindin, during their climbing years, as well as the many sketches she has made on her visits to the Alps since those days. Intense emotions underlie this work.
