I have always known that "art" was the path of expression for me. So...GO back - and then go way, way back, when I was a child, growing up in Englewood, Co. - that's when I listened to my heart and began painting for myself and others. The momentum mushroomed when upon retirement from teaching K-8 in Jeffco, this creative wave within me ~ ebbed and flowed and has for 45+ years. In the midst of all this, I listened to my muse to paint for myself and others, as well as always trying to share with others that LOVE for creating, seeing and learning. I try to allow my environment to influence and guide me an attempt to DO art every day. When I paint or when I create - I love value, color and light in all things beautiful, organic or fixed. I paint what I LOVE! I recently acquired a large weaving loom which I am in the throes of learning to weave ~ as an art form. I welcome you to visit my blog http://jpwall.blogspot.com, where I journal about creating my art and living at the base of the Sangres. I sell some of my works ONLINE at Etsy and Daily Paintworks, as well as the 3rd Street Gallery in Westcliffe. Find me on Facebook – Pattie Wall – Fine Artist.
