10 " h x 10 " w x 1.5 " d |1 lbs. 0 oz.
In this painting I use oil paint in blocks of color to create texture and form. This is simply a pure abstraction taken from my mental view of the water and land areas off the Eastern coast. The color reaches around the edge of the painting. The painting is wired and ready to hang.

Patrick O'Boyle primarily paints in a studio, rarely using reference material other than his own thoughts and dreams. He always paints in a series of five - at the end of the fifth painting he revisits and reworks all of them until he feels they're complete. Using extra-long handles on his brushes, Patrick paints at a distance from the canvas so he can see the works evolve as a whole from the one color he starts with to the vibrant array at the end.
