Invoking the nostalgic and familiar, Sandra Pratt's paintings are an emotional response to the places she has been. Her harmonious compositions are rooted in an ever present horizon line and often entice the viewer through a strong use of linear perspective; drawing the eye into and through an anonymous village street or to the door of a lone house on the prairie. These scenes are rendered by palette knife in bold, confident shapes of thick de-saturated earthtone colors, with nature and old architecture as inspiration.
