Did a little updating on the website yesterday. See www.PriscillaMessnerPatterson.com and click on the "Open Gallery" link to see what's on sale to make room for all the new stuff that's been happening. Every once in awhile it's good to purge the inventory. Meantime, a little watercolor of some fall leaves kept me off the street for awhile. Check the Skywriting side, too, to stay up to date.
Welcome! This is a separate blog from my Skywriting page which features my aviation art. Here there'll be a focus on the other work that I do- landscape, still life, animals, florals, and even fabric art. Thanks for checking!
My husband and I live in the Pacific Northwest. Before moving here in 2006, we lived on Kodiak Island in Alaska for 23 years. There, I worked in an art gallery, commercial fished (only for a summer), and taught art at Kodiak College for nearly 18 years. My specialty is aviation art, and I am a member of the American Society of Aviation Artists, the Canadian Aviation Artists Association, NorthWest Air Force Artists and the Coast Guard and Air Force art programs. I have won some cool awards from places like ASAA, Simuflite/Flying Magazine and Aviation Week and Space Technology and have done some work for Alaska Magazine, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association and the Alaska Airmen's Association. I love painting airplanes, but find doing occasional still life and landscapes a fun diversion. Additional diversions are singing with a Sweet Adelines chorus and tap dancing. Boredom is not in my vocabulary.
