Hi, l’m Dan Patterson. I’ve been painting fine art for over 40 years, specializing in oil painting. I am currently known for my still life and landscape work, but also do wildlife and an occasional figure painting. I strive to create realistic compositions by painting familiar subjects and employing a careful understanding of how light affects our perception of color. I work from my studio where I’ve developed my painting skills as a fine artist. My education was acquired from Illinois Central College and Minneapolis Technical College in the fields of commercial and fine art. I worked in the commercial art field as an illustrator, production artist, and designer since 1978, and I was also a college commercial art instructor for 10 years. During my time as a commercial artist I always pursued my love for fine art, and over the last few years I have been able to devote myself full-time to fine art.
