I painted this as an expressionist work, inspired by the clouds while flying home from the west coast. The tilt of the wings made the horizon shift. I later painted this model and noticed that her shoulders were shifted to match. I brought the clouds into her being to show that in just a moment, a blink of an eye, you can experience a "Paradigm Shift". This piece is on two gallery wrapped canvases measuring 48x48 and 48x46.  The paintings continue around the sides of the gallery wrapped canvases and come 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.”
