Artworks by Pat Cross now in the 21st Annual Gala Juried Fine Art Exhibition.

Figurative Paintings

In this series of oil paintings, I explore the artistry and visual language spoken by the human form. "People often talk about body language," says Pat Cross, "but I prefer to listen with a pencil or brush in hand. Then, I tend to listen more closely and pick up on cues I'd miss otherwise."

Floral Paintings

In this series of oil paintings, Pat Cross explores, up close and personal, both garden and wild blooms. "I notice that plants behave in certain ways, giving each flower a personality of its own," says Pat Cross, "So, I paint the bloom as I would a portrait." Collecting a floral painting brings the refreshment of a garden indoors to enjoy every season of the year.

Paintings of Birds

In this series, I explore the salient personalities and visual qualities of our feathered friends who add so much joy to our lives with their fanciful flitting, social quirks and cheerful music.

Landscape Paintings

In this series of oil paintings, Pat Cross brings the viewer along on an outdoor adventure. "When I hike a trail or paddle a lake, I scout for striking scenery to paint," says the artist, adding, "And I bite at the bit to share that experience with others." Pat Cross has explored some of our nation's most awe-inspiring geographies such as the Colorado Rockies, Oregon Cascades, and Appalachain Range.

Waterways Paintings

This series of oil paintings on natural waterways reveal the powerfully soothing and reflective nature brooks, rivers and tides. "I find the musical sounds of moving water as refreshing as I do the mercurial beauty of it," says Pat Cross. The view is forever changing as the water travels, leaving ripples, waves, foam or splashes in its wake.
