Pat Todd grew up watching her father paint advertising and magazine illustrations. In her own pastels, one can see his influence, as inventive compositions eagerly draw you in. Luscious shades of azure, deep plum and cobalt inhabit velvet shadows while adjacent highlights - ablaze with brilliance - splash across fields, barn walls and blossoms. These stunning proclamations illustrate, loud and clear, Pat's love of the natural world.
