This is one of my favorite paintings of Red Dot Gallery student Pat Conrad. She is free and uninhibited with her brush (a talent of which I am always jealous) and she is very prolific (another thing I envy!) This painting affects me, in a good way, on so many levels. One of Pat's best qualities is that she has no equal when it comes to following directions, and, as I am her teacher, that is a delightful thing. It also means she has progressed by leaps and bounds since she started a few years ago.
