Music is my inspiration and every piece I paint has a "Voice". For this piece, I listened to Damien Rice's CD "9".
The abstract buildings in this piece where created from 3 Asian books with different colored papers that I collaged onto the work. I also used acrylic paint.
This painting is a diptych on two cradled masonite panels. It comes varnished and ready to hang. Each panel measures 20x23.5 inches.
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.
