Kim Tingley of Windermere West Seattle will be featuring art by Patrick Sanford at November Art Walk tomorrow evening.
Patrick Sanford spent 22 years as the owner of a video design company, and had the last public showing of his art 27 years ago. Before the digital age, Pat was a staff artist at KOMO-TV and studied illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
Focused on family and business, making art was mostly limited to personal pieces (wife, kids, dogs, cats…), vacation watercolor sketches, and the occasional still life entry to local arts festivals. Now, Pat has returned to his lifelong love of drawing and painting on a full-time basis.
A 40-year resident of West Seattle, Pat is kicking off his return to painting with a departure from his portrait and still life art with a collection of oil paintings depicting the every day places in his life and his wanderings of the summer of 2015. From his home in Endolyne, walking in Lincoln Park is a morning ritual, and several of the pieces are scenes from those walks. Other Northwest scenes include San Juan Island’s American Camp, Bayhead Farm on Shaw Island, the family beach cabin in Kingston, WA, and the family home.
