Original Oil Painting and Watercolor By
Rev. Pat Halverson
On Display and for Sale
February 1 thru March 30, 2019

Pat Halverson’s love for nature began in childhood at the family cabin on a Minnesota lake. Pat further developed that love in college with a degree in earth science. Eventually she pursued masters degrees in divinity and theology, where her focus was on the Creator of such a beautiful world. Now Rev. Halverson tries to express her love for God’s creation through her artwork, focusing on the art of landscape painting.

Pat participates in several art fairs each year so her artwork has been seen at venues in the Quad City area as well as other regional locations. Having recently retired (though still busy) Rev. Halverson is focusing on her artwork where she lives in Eldridge, Iowa.
