I am the astonished and proud owner of an exquisite Pat Halsell Norwegian landscape painting commissioned by some friends on the occasion of a big birthday.  It is the crown jewel of my home.  This piece of luminous art combines her acute technical craftsmanship with an ability to create the illusion of three-dimensional space seemingly effortlessly. The natural light emanating from the moody mid-summer sky and the Vermeer blue lake water brings me back to a time before time, when the rhythms of nature were unsullied by the travelers lucky enough to witness such a landscape.  Thanks to Pat’s remarkable skill, I am transported daily to one of my favorite places on earth.                                                                                                                                                                                    –Martha Kongsgaard
