Patricia Burson



Artist Statement

Patricia goes to ask the tree how it feels to grow wider season after season, shaking and shimmering in the wind, the silvery stream how it is to babble and bounce and giggle over rocks and stones, our golden moon how it feels in eternity to wax and wane and wink and climb the sky. “Nature is mundane and profound. That’s what I like to paint,” she said.
