Pat Mahony’s landscapes are a compilation of visual and emotional memories of vistas she has seen. She renders an image on the canvas as if it were a feeling or recollection rather than a detailed depiction. Purple irises bloom every year on a plot of land near Mahony’s Carmichael home. This particular painting was accepted into the prestigious National Watercolor Society’s annual competition in Los Angeles in 2018. Shown: “Purple Iris,” 16 inches by 22 inches, watercolor and gouache. The painting will be auctioned at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center Spring Gala on June 8.
