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.
“I attempt to create a painting that is engaging, touching on universal sentiment and rewarding further contemplation.” Pat Service
She acquired a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of B.C. and later studied art at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland. Service’s work is held in private collections in North America, Britain, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong.
