FLOR 440 by Patricia Rottino Cummins

Patricia Rottino Cummins, "FLOR 440: Sea Lavender," oil on canvas, 36" x 24", 2012 (CC).

 

About the Artist:

Patricia Cummins has been art educator in Miami Dade Public Schools for thirty-three years. She has won numerous awards and exhibits her paintings nationally and internationally. Her focus includes painting landscapes and has served ten National Park residencies in the US. She will serve a Summer 2012 residency at the prestigious Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Ireland.

Artist Statement:

I paint the landscapes, the feelings and the experiences that they create for me; the perceptions and sensations that collect as a result of a day at the shore, or under the shade of a live oak, or during weeks spent serving a residency at a National Park. If these sensations communicate with the viewer through my work, their connection and purpose are complete.
