Sunrise is brief and dramatic. This painting captures the moving light of the rising sun. I started by applying a thick orange underpainting using a palette knife to create a rich glow. I finished with smooth brushstrokes over the water. There is always hope in the coming of a new day. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Patricia

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.”
