This work was inspired by a day on the beach at Santa Monica. The colors match the fantasy of childhood memories at the amusement park where joy is larger than life.  This painting combines thick and thin treatment of paint, even rubbing-out to create illusion. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It 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.”
