About Father & Son

This charming, unembellished portrait of a little boy held closely by his father as they wade in the water is by Pat Service. The backdrop for the painting is lime green…a summer colour and the two figures appear to be wearing bathing suits…the father is smiling. It is an intimate piece.

“Living close to nature for the first 12 years of my life indelibly imprinted on me an identity with trees, fields, creeks, lakes, dirt, rocks, the sun, the sky, gardens, plants, flowers, roads, and so on. Every time I start a new painting I am attempting to honour and seal that connection. “Pat Service
