“Song of the Day” by Patricia Czepiel Hayes
We are delighted to welcome Patricia Czepiel Hayes as our gallery’s newest member. Patty is an oil painter (as well as commercial graphic designer). Exploring her interest in both realism and abstraction, Hayes creates oil paintings inspired by the natural world, typically plants and trees growing close to her home in Hadley, Massachusetts. In January 2015 she began a series of bird paintings, focusing on song birds and shore birds. See her Member Artist page for more information, and be sure to visit her website: http://www.hadleydesignworks.net.
