History: In 2013 Irving Art Association’s two venerable animal-art exhibits were combined into a single show: the 12th Annual Wildlife & Domestic Animal Juried Art Competition. In 2012 the Wildlife Juried Art Competition was in its eleventh year, and the Unconditional Love: Pet Fine Art Juried in its fourth. In its 15th year, we shortened the title to IAA National Animal Art Juried Competition,reflecting the show’s national status also.

lindamood4JUROR: Patsy Lindamood

Learning from from nationally and internationally recognized pastelists and wildlife artists, Patsy has emerged with a style uniquely her own, marked by strong, colorful, yet infinitely detailed compositions in a representational style.  She has become a nationally award winning artist in her own right.

Her work derives from research and observation of creatures in their environments, in the wild whenever possible. Trips to state and national parks have provided great adventure and abundant inspiration. Wildlife also regularly visit her property in Huntsville, and it is not unusual to pass deer or roadrunners on her weekday routes.

Working in pastel, graphite, colored pencil, and watercolor or watercolor pencil, Lindamood’s paintings are life-size, bold with color, rich with texture, and bursting with presence. She frequently paints on cradled artist boards, Pastelboard or Mylar.

For more about Patsy and her art, see her website at http://www.lindamoodfineart.com.
