Second Saturday Event July 11: Meet the Artists Joan North and Pat Gaska 10-2.
My art represents moments that inspire me. It may be the fleeting reflections of trees on a river, a flock of birds alighting on a beach, or the glow of orange bricks on a historic building late in the day.
I regularly paint landscapes outdoors here in Wisconsin and in Florida, where wind and constantly changing light are artistic challenges. Usually I finish these small, and often soft and subtle pieces indoors. My studio-created pieces are moving toward larger, bolder, and more dramatic depictions.
