Patsy Lindamood

Name: Patsy Lindamood, PSA
Bio: Patsy Lindamood did not embark upon a career as an artist until late 2001. Although she is still a full-time Credit Union CEO, she nevertheless manages to paint full time as well. This self-taught artist has produced a large body of wildlife art over the last number of years. A late starter, Patsy has achieved a growing list of exhibition acceptances and competition awards, as well as signature memberships -- including the International Guild of Realism, Art of Conservation, the Pastel Society of America, the UK Coloured Pencil Society, and the FLAG (Florida Artists Group)
Media: Pastel, Colour pencil. Water-soluble wax.
Subjects: Wildlife
Style: Representational - she was juried into The International Guild of Realism in 2008.
Navigation: This website is frames-based, a format I continue to like. It means the menu stays available throughout, and it is user friendly.
Gallery: There seems to be some duplication of access. The menu on the left lists The Art, People Portraits and Pet Portraits respectively, but the latter two are included in The Art when you open that particular gallery. The sub-galleries in The Art are: Wild Places; African Animals; North American Animals; Big Cats; Birds; Butterflies, Turtles and Other Small Creatures; and the aforementioned People Portraits and Pet Portraits.
Image View: The gallery thumbnails enlarge in a slideshow. On the extreme right a separate narrow frame continues to display the thumbnails for that particular gallery. Few of the images are labelled with information on size or medium, unless available for purchase. Each slideshow image moves on to the next in a cutesy ‘iris’ dissolve that is irritating in the extreme. Within the slideshow each image may be further enlarged (still no details) and some, but not all, may be downloaded freely (when I say ‘freely’ I mean there is no technology-based impediment; all artwork is copyright protected.) The gorilla had no impediment. It is a 24" x 36" pastel on Ampersand Pastelbord, and was included in the 48th Annual Exhibition of the Society of animal Artists at The Neville Public Museum, Green Bay, WI, and then selected for the Society of Animal Artists National Tour in 2009.
Demo: No.
Blog:/Ebay/Flickr/: No.
