ELLSWORTH, Maine — An art show will exhibit works by Barbara Buza from Jan. 4 through Feb. 4 at Ellsworth Public Library.
“I’ve always had the joy of drawing since early childhood,” Buza stated in her biography. “Only in my thirties did I begin experimenting with paint and teaching myself how to paint with a 99-cent Crayola watercolor packet, so I believe anyone can paint. Now I am painting with acrylic, oil, water color, and painting with dyes on silk.”
Buza’s subjects often have a Biblical theme and include birds and wildlife, dogs, flowers, landscapes, and portraits. She said sharing her works with others makes her “feel truly alive.”
“Creating is what I believe I was created for,” Buza said.
In 2011, she published a book of 42 paintings, “The Twelve Days of Christmas As Scene In Maine.” The net proceeds of the book helped fund Acadia Art Sanctuary, a future not-for-profit art center/artist retreat in Ellsworth. Go to Acadia-Art-Sanctuary.org for more information; for more information on Buza, go to her website at www.bransart.com.
Buza works as a registered nurse and has lived in Ellsworth since 2000.
