A Summer Pallete

Patrick CashePatrick Casher

Patrick Casher lives and works in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. His work is represented in public and private collections in the United States and abroad.

The Victorian architecture and rural setting of his hometown provide much of the subject matter for his representational paintings. The rooftops and spires surrounding his studio supply an endless offering of shapes and planes that inspire his landscapes. While most of his work is "home grown," inspiration also springs from painting forays to Europe; most recently to Spain's Costa Del Sol. His plein aire sketches are fresh and spontaneous and often serve as studies for larger studio works. Beginning with a burnt umber or or other dark ground, acrylics are layered from dark to light.
