Abstract Artist: Pat Stacy
Medium: Acrylic, Mixed Media
It is color that begs me to paint as well as the desire to share my inner world through the color and texture that I love. I paint every day, getting lost for hours in the creation of my work. Painting has become my passion, a gift of the great Creator that brings me much joy. My work is contemporary and abstract, very colorful and may contain symbols of my “thank you” to the Great Creator. These symbols may be an Entity with the light of the Creator touching the shoulder, descending squares denoting the entrance of the light of the Creator into the painting, or spirals, which for me are symbols of the journey to the center of being. It is my hope that my work touches you and even may make you smile!
