“As I paint I question my color- darker lighter cooler warmer. I have studied color for 30 years and take pleasure out of the vibrations that are created by color placement.”
Patricia has her pallet table on rollers as well as her paint cart so she can work on multiple images at a time; sometimes 7 days a week for 8-14 hours a day and she loves every minute of it! She rises early with a cup of coffee and gets to get studio as quick as possible and locks herself into her creative space. Starting by working relentlessly on the animal's proportions and composition, once she is satisfied she will paint without reserve to bring life to the painting.
“I view each piece as a self portrait. It is what I see with my eyes, process in my mind, and create with my time that transfers an experience into painting. It is a self portrait of the viewer as well. It is in their eyes, their mind that they experience the painting. Every day bringing something new.”
When you add a Patricia Griffin painting to your collection, you can be certain it is her best work. Uniquely, Patricia gets a panel of people together to review her work. Pieces that are found to be substandard are burned to free her from failures, rejuvenate her artistic spirit, and keep only the best for collectors.
Patricia's work has been features in museums across the country. She has won numerous awards for her work and is an active member of many art associations.
