Sizzle sand and waves rise up in our minds. We run to our designated umbrella and spend the afternoon shaded in what appears to be a village of shadows. After a while we make a dash to the shoreline for a swim. Refreshed, we take those first steps back confidently that our feet won't burn, but after five steps we are on the run again. Hot sand and summer, communities of figures under umbrellas like a mosaic.
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.”
