Patricia Doherty, a Gloucester resident, has a passion for light and color and especially enjoys painting sunrises and sunsets.
Doherty has always had a passion for painting and cannot remember a time when she didn't feel the need to paint. Her favorite subjects are the transition times of each day when the sky and water are filled with so many colors. "I have actually stopped strangers to have them look up at an exquisite sky. I use oil paint to try to capture that beauty on canvas," she says. "There is just so much beauty around us. I am very blessed to be living here in Gloucester."
