Southwest Art Magazine Cover & Feature Article - September 2018

We are so honored that Patrick Saunders' “A Window on Bentley’s Backyard” (oil on linen, 18”x24”) was chosen for the cover of the September issue of Southwest Art Magazine.

Our thanks to editors Kristin Bucher Hoerth and Kim Agricola, and to writer Gussie Fauntleroy for a great feature article on Patrick's journey as an artist.

That this issue also features the magazine’s annual ’21 under 31’ is meaningful for Patrick as well, because he was one of them years ago in the September 2001 issue.
