Circus Act is a mixed media painting on canvas. Various collaged papers were adhered to the canvas to create shape and form. Paint was applied layer after layer. Pure color inspires me to cover the canvas. I'm painting, heading into the unknown to create an abstract work of art.

Patrick O'Boyle primarily paints in a studio, rarely using reference material other than his own thoughts and dreams. He always paints in a series of five - at the end of the fifth painting he revisits and reworks all of them until he feels they're complete. Using extra-long handles on his brushes, Patrick paints at a distance from the canvas so he can see the works evolve as a whole from the one color he starts with to the vibrant array at the end.
