iowa as inspiration
I'm an Iowa girl through and through. That's not to say I don't appreciate other places, but there is a myriad of unassuming, beautiful subjects within a short drive's distance in any direction.
Iowa is special. It has diverse topography; flat farmland, rolling hills, rocky bluffs, rivers, lakes, streams, parks and ponds.
"... one can marvel at the pinks, purples and blues that create the sky in ... Shari Baeth's 'Electric Sunset' pastel painting." Des Moines Register review
"Shari Baeth's watercolor piece, 'Winter Passage' ... delicately recalls winter's beauty in pastel through exquisite colorations." Pamela Trimpe, Curator - University of Iowa Museum of Art
