I wanted to capture a soft, subtle feel in this reclining nude on a wedding ring quilt. I was able to play off the colors in the quilt to create what I think is a really pleasing effect. Very happy with the results! This is a gallery wrapped canvas with the edges painted to match the background and comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Patrick

Patrick Soper paints works that explore line, texture and the female body. In his paintings, he explores the texture of paint and different color combinations. Many of his pieces mix flesh tones with other colors to add interest. When he's not making art, he enjoys traveling, fishing, reading, and going to outdoor music festivals. Fun fact: Patrick was originally a zoology major and met his wife in a taxidermy shop.
