Music is my inspiration and every piece has a "voice." Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" and "Frank" served as the soundtrack for this piece. All texture in this work is derived from palette knives.

This piece is a diptych, with each panel measuring 20x24 inches. This painting is on two cradled masonite panels with natural pine edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Patricia

As a child in the 1950s, Patricia Oblack sat in front of the television and learned to draw with Jon Gnagy’s New Television Art Instruction Book. The exercise led to a love of art, and in 1962 she begged her mother to purchase lessons from Art Instruction, Inc. in Minneapolis. Within a few weeks, a box arrived with art supplies, including her first palette knife. Patricia finished every lesson, and was in good company–another student of the school was renowned Peanuts cartoonist Charles M. Schulz. From that humble beginning, Patricia became a lifelong artist, currently creating dark, earthy abstracts, which she paints with the same palette knife from childhood.
