Red Car, Green Bush

Red Car, Green Bush, oil on poplar, 7" x 8"

Pat Edwards is an independent artist living in Iowa City. Pat received both her undergraduate and graduate degrees in art from The University of Iowa. In addition to teaching she has also served as an artist-in-residence through the Iowa Arts Council. Her work was recently featured in a one-person exhibition at the Dubuque Museum of Art.

Pat paints in oil on small-scale panels and large canvases to create intimate backyard scenes. Loosely painted, her images conjure up a nostalgic mood of peaceful summer days. The manner in which she portrays light and shadow help to define the mood and time of day in each painting. Although often small in scale, these paintings can be read at a distance, but the intimate size invites the viewer to inspect at a closer range.
