inventory...listed artist Patricia Ann Bergstrom (1930-2015) #landscapepainting
18 by 24 inches....from the artist's obituary: Patricia Ann Bergstrom (1930-2015) was born in Springfield, Ohio on April 22, 1930, to George B. and Martha E. (Harris) Shaw. Pat began painting and sewing as a child, making many of her own clothes and, later, winning an art scholarship to Ohio State University. After two years at OSU, Pat became an illustrator for the air force at Wright Patterson AFB.
That career was interrupted a year later when she married her college sweetheart and moved to Reno. Over the next nearly 64 years, Pat raised two children, greatly expanded her knowledge of clothing design, sewing and tailoring and, with the late Craig Sheppard's help, her use of watercolor for the painting that was her first love. When her children were in college, she turned to her brushes, developing an appreciative audience for her portraits of children who were often pictured with the subject's favorite toy, pet or sport equipment, adding the child's own interest to her images.
