An afternoon in a vineyard tasting room. Wine glasses clink and a woman goes to the fireplace to warm up. The atmosphere is cozy. "The ultimate relaxation of sampling wines, people watching and unguarded conversations," says Patricia. "I painted the people through gestures to capture the feeling of the day. Some of the wine glasses are painted thick with a palette knife to create the swirl of the bubbles."
Patricia’s soft and painterly scenes are a result of the artist’s careful selection of materials. Her layers of paint, whether in oil or acrylic, are thoughtfully premeditated depending on the effect she seeks to create. Patricia is also highly conscious of the tools she uses, averaging forty brushes per painting, in addition to using paper towels and found materials to manipulate the paint. Her subject matter is a reflection of the world around her. “I create what moves me on any given day,” says Patricia. “It is a joint process between me and the universe. I let the world around me speak through my canvas.”
