It's not unusual to come across old Victorian houses like this especially in the north-central part of Oklahoma. If I were a gambler, I'd bet this old home belonged to a farmer who made big bucks growing and selling wheat to the Allies during WWI and probably lost it after the stock market crash and the subsequent dust bowl years. I'm in love with the house, but I can only express that on canvas.  I used acrylic gesso on the plain canvas to add additional dimension. The sides are finished with black paint and the painting is varnished. It is on gallery wrapped canvas, wired and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Patricia

Patricia Freeman lives in Oklahoma City with her husband. When asked why she paints, Patricia replied, "I paint because I have to." The process, peeling the plastic off a new canvas to smelling the paint, lifts her to a state of pure joy.
