Pat’s paintings are loosely realistic, with interpretive color. She creates or uses the color of the painting surface as one element, building on it through a combination of color fields and marks, working toward a painting that has both abstract and realistic elements. Each painting contains a spark: the “why’”of the painting—such as a particular quality of light or a dynamic pattern of shadows, settling fog, sparkling water. Pat enjoys working “en plein air” and is inspired by quality of light and pattern. She has lived in the mountains of western Maryland since 2008, having relocated from the Washington D.C. area.
