Bend, OR -- Pat Cross launched a new Fine Art America Group entitled "Head in the Clouds." This new group collects the artworks and member artists who paint compelling skies. Designed for painters only, the Group is open to any painting medium including oil, watercolor, acrylic, tempora, gouche, pastel, dyes and water-soluable color pencils. I chose the title, "Head in the Clouds" to parody misconceptions about professional artists who, more often than not, demonstrate dicipline, hard work, depth of thought and expansive views. Here, in this new FAA Group, member artists may also show support of one another through encouraging critique, ideas and image votes.

Now, for the first time, museum-quality prints of "Grazing Sunriver Meadow" are available on Fine Art America. Selected as the feature artwork for the annual Sunriver Music Festival, "Grazing Sunriver Meadows" reached over 50,000 viewers through poster prints, program guide and magazine covers, as well as media publicity. Each year, one artist from the Pacific Northwest is selected by the Sunriver Music Festival to represent the musical qualities of the region in a fine art form. Known for her oil paintings of the Oregon landscape, Pat Cross was commissioned to create a vertical artwork that depicts the unseen qualities of the area--music. "I relish the sounds of Sunriver," says Pat Cross, "From the gentle breezes that make Aspen leaves patter like rain, to the riotous percussion of late-summer thunderheads, the atmosphere in Sunriver makes music."

Now, for the first time, museum-quality prints of Autumn Fall River II are available on Fine Art America. In the original oil painting, the Fall River winds through the Deschutes National Forest, as one of Oregon's most scenic and remoteóa fly fishermanís favorite. Although the Fall River has its fair share of rapids, the artist is most attracted to those rare vistas of calm waters. Here, the reflections play on both the floor and the ceiling of the river to create a complex abstraction of shape and color. One of a series of Oregon Landscape oil paintings by Pat Cross.

Now, for the first time with Fine Art America, Pat Cross makes available fine art prints of the 24" x 36" oil painting entitled "Broken Top on Sparks Lake." One of a series of oil paintings on the Oregon Landscape by Pat Cross. Evening sun filters through a buffer of clouds to illuminate the richly-hued, craggy crown of Broken Top, a statovolcano along the Cascade Range in Oregon. The wind subsides to calm the clear, glacial waters of Sparks Lake just long enough for Broken Top to admire his reflection. See more artworks by Pat Cross at www.patcrossart.com
