Oil on wood
80” x 36”
Patti Dempster lives in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with her husband Tom. They have 3 daughters, 3 sons-in laws and 8 grandchildren that help keep the creative side of her alive. She attended the University of South Dakota and graduated with a degree in Education. She has been a student of Sheila Agee for 3 years and would like to align herself with abstract painting but finds her work often to have variations in nature.
My inspiration for this painting comes from the years my children were small and we used to play along the edges of the beautiful purple flax field behind our Lake Poinsett cabin. Those purple fields are no longer there except in the minds of my children and myself.
