Hi Patricia - I can't wait to see it. I have a special place for it. Also I got my eye on Sticks and Stones plus the House. Thank you - You are very talented. Have a nice holiday Linda

Patricia Freeman 12/2/2016 | 12:07 PM

Hi Linda, Thank you for purchasing The Secret Lives of Pets. I'm really fond of Spot (the dog) and Andrew (the cat). It gave me many hours of pleasure painting it. I caught their personalities pretty well. Thank you for purchasing it. It belongs in the home of an animal lover. Happy Holidays, Patricia

Hi Linda, I'm not sure if Ive said thanks enough, but one more time couldnt hurt. Thank you!

L Wells 7/2/2016 | 12:34 PM

I received the beautiful paintings and they are hanging up. Little by little I am replacing the prints that are hanging up You will be hearing from me again.

Patricia Freeman 6/25/2016 | 3:01 PM

No problem. The cat and dog painting is one of my favorites. I think I caught their personalities really well in that painting.

Hi Linda, It seems like your painting arrived pretty quick. I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed painting it. Thank you so much.

Patricia Freeman 1/5/2016 | 1:25 PM

Hi Gene, Thanks for choosing one of my paintings for your wall! I am currently waiting for the box Ugallery sends me made especially for shipping paintings. It will most likely be here this afternoon, but no later than tomorrow. As soon as that box arrives I'll have that painting packed and out the door to Fedex. Thanks Again, Patricia

G Freeman 1/5/2016 | 12:47 PM

Ordered your Chinaberry tree Jan. 1. Waiting for its arrival. Have several more of yours that I like. Look forward to seeing it up close. Best Gene Freeman

Thanks for the compliment and I'm really glad to hear that you are enjoying the painting. When you mentioned hurricane I flashed back to the last time we were in New Orleans. There's this place on Saint Charles a couple of miles off the French Quarter called Mama something or other (I can't recall the name) but they have incredible food and they make their hurricanes from scratch. I really need to go back to New Orleans..

All I can say is that Patricia Freeman is very talented. The painting looked really good online and that made me want to buy it. Once it arrived and I had a chance to study it,I really loved it. Makes me feel like I'am in the French Quarter with a Hurricane.

Thanks Don, I appreciate your comments, and I'll keep working at it.

Patricia Freeman 5/15/2014 | 10:49 AM

Hey Jennifer, Thanks! I'm glad to hear you're happy with it. I put two wires on it because it can hang either horizontally or vertically and I wanted you to have the option.

J Evans 5/15/2014 | 10:39 AM

Hi Patricia! We love our Ladybug-Rocks painting! It is such a sweet little piece. We will enjoy it for years! Quick question: I see you have two wires on the back...is the intention to have the painting hang either horizontal or vertical? We like it horizontal in our space, but I was curious. Thanks again!

Hi Mr. Aguilar, China must be quite a culture shock compared to New Orleans. You must miss the food. I know I do. My husband grew up in New Orleans, and we get back to New Orleans occasionally. They've come a long way since the storm. Thank you so much for the compliment. I wish your wife much success in selling her work. Does she exhibit her work online? I would love to see it. Thanks again. Patricia

Hi Patricia, you have some beautiful work! I saw your piece "New Orleans in the Rain". It was my old home. Brought back memories, especially since the storm. Now we are in China. Will show my wife who is an artist and inspired to sell her work too. Thanks for displaying your talents and much success!!!

As I noted to Patricia when I bought the piece, I used to visit blues bars in Chicago. Now I am deaf but this picture reminds me of those good times

You are so welcome, Don. I'm sorry you can no longer hear the music that you love. Art has its own kind of music.

Well, every once in awhile someone screams "road trip," and we hop in the car and just go; no maps and no GPS. We ended up in Addington, Oklahoma, a tiny town of maybe 200 people close to the texas border. Along one of the roads was a line of trees and a ditch filled with purple flowers. It was so pretty, but I didn't want to go exploring because I was reasonably sure some snake would resent the intrusion. So I took a picture. When I got home I explored every leave, blade of grass and every flower. I just did it with a brush.

L Richard 12/18/2012 | 2:14 PM

Tell me about "The Scenic Route". Where was it and what inspired you to paint it?

Patricia Freeman 7/1/2012 | 12:38 PM

I did live in Lawton, but it was 46 years ago, and I was two. It's a really common name. I hope you can find her.

D Churchill 7/1/2012 | 11:45 AM

Hi, I was wondering if you might be related to the Patricia Freeman who lived in Lawton many years ago. I lost track of her long ago and would love to catch up.

I want to thank everyone that visits my site, and everyone who has purchased a painting. Being a dialysis patient is difficult. One looks on the machine as a lifeline as well as a choke chain. I spend 25 hours a week on my machine, as long as a part-time job. So, I made it my part-time job. The people at Davita indulged my desire to paint while on the machine. As a matter of fact, they encourage me to do so, and they look the other way when I accidently drag the tubing through the paint, or if there is a spot of magenta on the television. I'm almost finished with another painting. Volleyball season has put me behind my work. I should paint something volleyball-ish as I spend a good deal of each week either transporting my children to a game or watching a game. My girls are affectionately known as "Thing One and Thing Two" due to there uncanny skill of leaving a trail of discarded clothing or objects everywhere they go. We never worry about them getting lost.

Robert was an amazing painter, and I can almost see how you could make the comparison. Thank you so much. You honor me with his name.

Hello Ms. Sewell, and thank you for your comment. The patches on the door were spackling, and the rest of the house was falling apart, and we'll never know why the door was locked from the outside. I can only conjecture that he/she turned around, locked the door, and walked away hoping they could come back to it some day.

J Sewell purchased this artwork. 4/10/2011 | 1:53 PM

Years ago there was a photographic poster made of doors in the Kansas City area. I just loved it - the colors, textures, sizes, places I knew. Your blue door suits me. I read, maybe here, that doors can symbolize change, beginnings or endings and I like how it makes me feel, maybe art reflecting life? Its locked on the outside and that's intriguing! The colors are more vivid in the print that the image in the I see here and it looks to be fall with the long shadows, the bare tree and the dried leaves on the ground -- a comforting time when everything slows and hopefully everyone gathers together again in this rugged and homey place. I don't know what the two white patches on the door are and what the material is. I used a dark 11" x 14" frame with double olive green mats. I'm very pleased.

Okay, I'm going to try blogging again. I'm new to this and am still learning to be politically correct. I am waiting for a painting to be approved for exhibition. Natasha is never, ever without her camera. She held out her hand and the butterfly landed on it. In her other hand the ever present camera went into action and she snapped a photo. There was another butterfly on a nearby bush and it reminded me of that old adage. Hence the title, The One in The Hand."

Comments About This Piece

The expressions on my model's faces were inspired by an offhand comment about their crazy Aunt June coming to dinner. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas that has been lightly textured to add dimension. The edges are finished in black. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
