My goal as an artist is to arrest nature’s motion, involving viewers as deeply as I can. As I make my artwork, I leave behind traces of feelings associated with my experience of each scene; sharing my vision of beauty and grace expressed through color and form.

The experiences of life that I find to be of greatest value are those that rest in the basic and seemingly simplistic. Garden fragrances, nature's color and form, all outweigh for me the more contrived and materialistic of our life today.  I paint the landscapes, the feelings and the experiences that they create for me; the perceptions and sensations that collect as a result of a day at the shore, or under the shade of a live oak, or during weeks spent serving a residency at a National Park.  If these sensations communicate with the viewer through my work, their connection and purpose are complete.

Paint The Parks

The idea of Paint the Parks is to visit protected park lands and paint them. 
Artists donate 10% from the sale of these park paintings to the respective 
non-profit Park Association or Park Foundation.   The Park Foundations or 
Associations are the non-profit partners of the government run parks. 
Donations support the preservation of parks, through conservation and 
education efforts for the National Park Foundation or The South Florida National Parks Trust

Please CONTACT  Patricia Cummins for sales information.

I am currently uploading images and labeling paintings with titles, media and dimensions to this gallery.  Please be patient there are about 20 parks  that I need to upload, and many images from each location!
