Artist: Barbara Chloe Murdoch
Watermedia created in colorful, abstract, whimsical and unique forms...

Barbara Chloe Murdoch moved to Fort Myers from Clarkston, Michigan in 1979 and continued her career as a court reporter until retiring in 2004.  In 1992 Barbara fulfilled her long-time dream of pursuing art.    She is a self-taught artist who chose watercolor as her medium.  She paints a wide variety of subjects in many styles; often painting a series of a particular subject.  Some of her most popular series have been Jungle Scenes, Dancin' Ladies and City Lights, which are rich, dramatic colors spilling from the mysterious buildings in a night-time cityscape. These paintings combine acrylic with watercolor and ink.  

She also loves to splash the paint on yupo paper, which is a smooth, man-made paper that allows the pigment to blend in beautiful rich color, as seen in her flowers and fishing shacks, as well as many other subjects.  These pieces are very loose and juicy.   She recently painted the "Queen Anne's Lace" series and "Yellow Dress" on this magical paper.  They are both on this web page for your viewing.  The result is a very beautiful but soft rendition of everyday subjects.  It's a look that she has only been able to achieve when she's creating on this paper.  Each piece is unique.  Many paintings on this page are also available in framed and unframed prints.
