Geeta Pattanaik (Riverside, California)
I have loved to draw and paint since I was a child, but did not devote myself exclusively to it, until later in life. I do pen and ink drawings, watercolors and oil painting. I love to do plein air painting, but also enjoy doing studio pieces, with subjects ranging from architecture, still life, florals to scenes of my travels. I am a member of several local and national art societies and show my work in various venues.
