PAT MCNABB MARTIN
“There are times I begin a painting with a preconceived notion of what I want to have happen and sometimes I approach a blank canvas letting the paint and process show me the way. Traditional artist brushes limit my freedom so my studio is full of utensils, knives, paints sticks and squeegees. Continuously adding, subtracting, painting over and painting out, allows the mystery of technique to keep me interested. My creative search remains investigational with the hope that in every painting the color and texture will rise to a new level of visual promise”.
