As a second career I started painting in oils again after a long absence. My work is in many private art collections. I am represented in the Carriage House Gallery in Boerne, Texas. I am an associate member of Oil Painters of America and a member of Boerne Professional Artists and member of American Women Artists. I paint mostly still lifes and landscapes from my studio in the Texas Hill Country.

B Mann Art Studio
Another great day of painting in my studio. I start with a turpentine wash, let it dry for a few hours and then begin to add color and form. My still life is set up on the table to my right. I control the light on the set up with a three sided presentation board that is easily adjusted for depth and width of my desired composition. I use directional lighting to control shadow and light.
