The opening for our Walled Gardens show at Art Access was packed with many of my favorite people. I smiled so much that night that I was a little sore the next morning. My only regret was that I wish I could spend more time in conversation with everyone there.

I have always worried about meeting an artist or author in person, the fear being the reality would diminish the idea of them created in my mind by their works of art. But Ms. Barney, I would have to say that in your case the reality was not only equal to, but superseded any expectation I could have had.
It was really wonderful to meet you and talk with you about you and your work.
My wife, Stacy, has been enthralled by your art since we first saw it at 300 Plates about a year and a half ago, and with yourself since meeting you at the Kayo Gallery this summer. (I have a feeling that your being a Bob Dylan fan figures in there somewhere.) This is reflected by your paintings on hanging on most walls of our home. Somehow she manages to keep finding room for more. We (Stacy and I and our friends Robert and Brian) have related the incredible time we had at the Art Access reception Friday to anyone and everyone.
Anything that gives Stacy joy, gives me joy, and I am glad that she discovered you and your work, if just for the selfish reason of the vast amount of happiness your paintings bring her.
So thank you very much for creating such wonderful artwork. Rick Seven.
