Nebraska native Patricia Scarborough has focused on painting landscapes of the Midwest since she wound her way through Kearney State College, graduating eventually with a degree in Fine Art. Her attraction has always been to the shapes and intervals of color that describe forms in the landscape as they drift toward the horizon.
Scarborough works from her home studio, making regular forays into the countryside near her home in Geneva in pursuit of an understanding of her place in this rural environment. She has participated in one-person exhibits across Nebraska, and has been juried into national exhibits as well. She currently shows her paintings at The Burkholder Project in Lincoln and the Anne Thorne Weaver Gift Shop at The Museum of Nebraska Art in Kearney.
From the Artist:
Simply put, I love the landscape of Nebraska; the gently rolling hills and flat fields, rows of ancient cottonwoods and bowers of tangled bushes. I try to record not only a representation of a place, but also its emotional character, creating a window for others to share the experience with me. The mediums I use, pastel and oil, allow a certain flow and openness that meet my needs.
