At once expressive and lyrical, this abstract work was painted by Pat Service renowned as one of Canada’s finest landscape artists. Service is often inspired by natural forms and colours. This delightful acrylic is her interpretation of images seen while playing the piano—sunlit leaves in soft oranges and reds punctuated by white. One in a series.
“Coming through the window just behind me, this reflection of a tree and its branches was very commanding. It wasn’t just any random ‘drawing’; the darks and the lights were an emphatic visual composition.” Pat Service
Pat Service 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.
