I discovered a love for painting in my 20’s, and after taking a few workshops here and there, decided to concentrate primarily on watercolor. I love gardening, with its many variables, so the colors and shapes of flowers became natural subjects to convey through paint and a brush. As you look at my work, I hope the images will reflect to you the creative imagination of God and the peace He desires to bring into each of our lives.
My husband and I live in the Pacific Northwest (USA) and were fortunate to be able to travel a bit, particularly to the UK and Central America. We lived in Costa Rica for a year when he took his sabbatical, teaching in a Study Abroad program. That year gave us the opportunity to open our hearts and minds to the people of nearby Nicaragua, particularly to the families of the many disabled children living in great poverty. Bill has held numerous business-building workshops there, as we attempt to help people climb the slow road to providing their own means for their families.
I want to thank so very much the anonymous buyer who purchased a print of my watercolor Casa Blanca Lilies! I’d love to hear from you if you’d like to bmail me. Thanks again, and I hope you enjoy it very much! ~ Pat
What a surprise!! Redbubble just notified me that my “Flowing Clematis” watercolor is featured on RB’s home page! I’m thrilled to pieces, I’d never thought any of my work would receive that honor! Just had to share my joy and surprise with you! ~ Pat
