Children of renowned Owen County painter and writer want copies to preserve

The children of Pat Brumback-Twedt, noted local author and painter, are trying to collect photos of all the paintings by their mother.
In the 1980s and 90s, Brumback-Twedt sold paintings, mostly portraits. She was featured at several juried exhibits throughout the state, such as the Capital Expo in Frankfort, where she painted portraits on the spot.
She also painted portraits for many others, including several for Owen countians that include a large painting of someone’s favorite automobile and another of a prized cow. Her paintings of doctors O.A. Cull and Maurice Bowling hung in the waiting room of the hospital for years.
Brumback-Twedt is also noted for authoring two books selected for the Kentucky Book Fair, From the Daybook of Picky Sinclair and Or Was That Eggs? A Memoir.
Her late husband, Jual Brumback, their children, others in Owen County, and her husband Dr. Robert Twedt were featured in her memoir, which was acclaimed for her sassy, irreverent and adventurous spirit.
Brumback-Twedt and her husband Bob are regulars at the Farmhouse Grill and Smith House restaurants, where she is never seen without one of the hats she made herself.
If you or someone you know has a picture painted by Brumback-Twedt, identified by the initials PAB in the lower right corner, her children would really appreciate a photo of it.
At age 86, Pat can’t remember everything she’s painted, and her children want the photos so that she can see all she’s done. Digital photos can be emailed to jakirk@fewpb.netor mail printed photos to Pat at 325 Old New Liberty Road.
