Well, it was a long time coming but here is the official publicity blurb:
Whether the economy is slowing down or bubbling, the Northwest region continues to foster a vibrant art scene. Given its wonderful lifestyle and natural beauty, artists love the region.
E. Ashley Rooney's intent in undertaking 100 Artists of the Northwest (Schiffer 2013) was to take a fresh look at the magical and insightful ways in which the area's artists have interpreted life in this region with its urban trendsetters and laid-back nature lovers.
Barbara Benedetti Newton of Renton, Washington was one of the artists selected for this work. First known as a master of the colored pencil medium, Barbara is currently noteworthy for her impressionistic, abstracted landscapes in pastel.
