On Display in our Lapp Gallery is local Artist Pat Wilson- Schmid
As I paint from my emotions, the act of painting is who I am. It is a line, a color, a shape, or an effect of light that inspires me. My spirit then directs me through the painting. Time embellishes my approach. In the end the paintings and I have traveled through much effort and feeling. They are a part of who I am.
While viewers experience the painting, I hope they see me looking back through the brushstrokes, transcending time. It is the legacy I wish to leave for future human kind.
I enjoy painting in oil, watercolor, acrylic and pastel. My style ranges from representational to abstract. When I look upon my subject, I paint from those feelings arising within me.
I have painted continually since 1962, and am now able to dedicate my life exclusively to my art.
MY MISSION STATEMENT
My desire is to have others experience my art as a part of their lives – a connection between people, generations and time.
