Dilworth Park at Philadelphia City Hall Live Wedding Painting

Patricia arrived in Philadelphia several hours before the reception and began painting City Hall while the caterers and band set up and guards shut down City Hall to visitors.

She painted through the evening, capturing the couple's first dance and specifically adding people pointed out to her by her client.

Patricia delivered the completed painting to the Wedding Brunch the next morning, a wire on the back for easy hanging.

Hay-Adams Hotel Wedding and Reception Live Painting

The top floor of the Hay-Adams Hotel, called the Top of the Hay, in the heart of Washington D.C. with a clear view of the White House was the location of this classic, beautiful wedding.

The client allowed Patricia to choose what to paint. So Patricia painted their ceremony in daylight, then depicted the reception with the night view of the White House.

Unique to Patricia's style both the ceremony and reception, as well as day and night are incorporated into the same painting.

Artist license was used to leave out walls and curtains that blocked the view of the White House and to elevate the ceiling in the space.

Opening Hunt of the De La Brooke Foxhounds W

Patricia was thrilled to paint the Opening Day of the De La Brooke Foxhounds in Southern Maryland. She even got to sit on a horse, which was a treat.

The Blessing of the Hounds is depicted in this painting, as well as the riders going off into the woods, and later eating oysters and celebrating. No foxes were hurt, the fox was not seen, but he is depicted in this painting.

A collection of Patricia's horse paintings can be seen here. She has painted several steeplechases as well as individual horse portraits.

...what a fantastic memorialization it is! As an Art History major at Johns Hopkins, I can particularly appreciate your depiction of the Solstice in the City porch party. And equally impressive is how you were able to paint the scene en plein air with the heat index in the mid to upper 90s!
