Barbara Lussier - Artist
Connecticut artist Barbara Lussier paints outdoors year round and has many beautiful snow paintings to show for it. When else can you see bright red or golden willows next to blue-violet shadows in the snow? And there are some places you can only get to when the water is frozen over.
She considers herself to be within the tradition of the Old Lyme School and the Hudson River School of painters - honoring nature and working from direct observation.
Barbara is a signature member of New England Plein Air Painters, is elected to the Lyme Art Association, the Hudson Valley Art Association and the Rockport Art Association. She is also an award-winning member of the Academic Artists Association and the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts.
