FC: Grandma's Canvas The artwork of Barbara Bentz

1: In kindergarten, Grandma was told that she wasn't very good at art. It wasn't until she was in her 50s that she decided to learn how to paint -- something she'd always wanted to do. She painted her first canvas in 2002 and was hooked. Here is her legacy from seven short years of painting on canvas.

4: Barbara Joan Bentz 1935-2009

5: Grandma's first painting on canvas was for her granddaughter, Christine. How appropriate that her first study brought all her passions together: grandkids, horses, and painting.

6: Grandma loved to paint birds.! She asked that any birders not look too closely at her markings, but the range of birds she captured on canvas is impressive.

15: As Grandma became more self-confident, she also became more adventurous and tried her hand at painting landscapes.

20: Grandma painted coastal scenes to display at the condo on the beach. She took her painting class to the condo for some painting retreats"

25: As much as Grandma loved birds and landscapes, her first love was flowers. She'd paint flowers on anything that didn't move: wood, metal, glass, porcelain, and canvas.

41: These are the last two unfinished canvases. Grandma had a lot of fun painting.
