Artist of the Month: July 2017
Sunny Lindsay Patton
Sunny especially likes to paint in watercolor and airbrush, depending on the desired final effect. The watercolor medium lends itself to the fresh spontaneous look that can be seen in her paintings. She gives demonstrations of paintings with airbrush and watercolor yearly at the Indio Date Festival and to local art groups.
Sunny is a member of the Coachella Valley Watercolor Society and taught art at a local elementary school for 15 years. She teaches at the “Young at Art” program at the C.V. Historical Museum in Indio during the summer.
Sunny has resided with her family in the desert since 1982. She and her husband have 2 grown children and live on their mini ranch in Bermuda Dunes with horses, and a German shepherd.
Her website is SunnyPatton.com and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org
