Irving Art Association is honored to present the Patsy Lindamood Wildlife Art Exhibit at the West Irving Library Dec. 4, 2016 through Jan. 8, 2017.The Library is located at 4444 W. Rochelle in Irving (near the intersection of Rochelle & Esters.)

Patsy is an IAA member and frequent winner in IAA’s Texas & Neighbors and Animal Art exhibits. The exhibit showcases her wildlife art but she also draws and paints domestic animals, landscape art, and portraits. Her latest series is on ranch and rodeo life.

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.
