In March 2014, I was selected for a group show at the Silk Purse Gallery. I had a show there in October.  My recent work shown here was in that show. I also had paintings for different venues during the West Vancouver 2014 Harmony Art Festival in late June.

I am continuing with a more abstract and dynamic portrail of my horses. I enjoy capturing the spirit of them on my canvas.

I continualy heading off in other directions as well.  I have been told that I should focus on a single style and a theme, but I have so many other ideas that I need to explore.  Here are the results of these directions.


A Very Good Year, watercolor, framed, 17 1/2″x 26″”


Seasons, Fall, acrylic on canvas, 24″ x 36″

Some bold almost surealist acrylic paintings and a visit to my early still lifes with a more free nature watercolors. Below is a watercolor painting of my sister, Sally’s Sunflowers.

    I knew we had some talented artists in the family but Wow! Beautiful work in deed. Our Son Tyler thought the zebras was an actual photo and had us fooled as well. All the best with your upcoming show.

    Much love to you and the family,


  2. Patty, We are so proud of you. Love the zebras and your studio.What a good example you are to all our family. You are such a doll. Love, Mary Jo and Tom

    Wow Patty! Absolutely amazing artwork. I love the photo of you actually painting. I think Dorothy would enjoy that photo, as well…working in an inspiring space and being creative. I, too love the zebras and thought they were real. The light in their eyes are very reflective of how playful they are as creatures. Billy, baby and I would love to see your work in person one day. Love to you and all the Kanucks! Rhox
