Patsy Arrington Dorsett specializes in traditional realistic oil portrait painting by commission including Family, Corporate, Memorial, Historical, Canine, and Equine. Her Fine Art Studio/Gallery, Dorsett Portraits is located in her hometown of Vinton, Virginia. A historical Pink 1907 Dutch Colonial Revival house has made the perfect working studio/gallery for Dorsett's original oil paintings, since established in 1985. The Gallery includes sample portrait designs for clients considering commissioning an original portrait. For savvy art collectors who want to browse, framed original oil paintings of Virginia landscapes, equine, canine, bovine, lily pond, and historical subjects are available for purchase.
