Barrel Staves are one of her favorite objects on which to paint. “It is a pleasure to use wooden barrel staves to create my interpretation and sense of life in the late 18th and 19th century in unique, colorful, and sometimes patriotic presentations.”
Whether it be barrel staves, chests, or other objects, Sally has been a favorite for many years.
