We love our Pat Matthews painting. It is a painting of Independence Pass area in Colorado-somewhere we have spent many family hours together. It is so 3 dimensional it looks like you could walk right into the woods and become part of the painting. Everyone who sees the painting asks about it. The story behind the painting is that my sister in law spent a vacation in Santa Fe and walked the gallery walk for over 2 weeks. She is an artist herself and told us we had to check out Pat Matthew's work, it looked like it would fit our taste and setting in our new house. She was there in the spring, we went in the fall. All the work of Pat's on display was completely different but this painting was the perfect feeling and choice. We love our little piece of Colorado and enjoy the painting very much. I hope to own another art work of Pat's.
