What's the Hurry?

"What's the Hurry?" by Patti Russell

Inman Perk Gainesville welcomes the artistic stylings of Patti Russell for the month of August.

From Patti Russel:

My artistic style is “expressionistic”. I do not strive to make a sunflower look just like the real flower but rather my “feeling of the flower and its attitude” at that particular time. If I am painting a landscape I don’t copy my photo reference, but rather I use several photos – taking the sky from one, the land from another, a tree from another, and then putting all the photos aside – finishing the painting in whatever way it seems to work best for me. Thus my landscape paintings are not of a specific place – but a place in my mind that is totally unique.
