Artist Talks - Tybee Island, Georgia

Georgia painters, I've been asked to give artist talks on the evenings before both of my sold out Tybee Island, Georgia, painting workshops sponsored by The Tybee Tourist and Mermaid Cottages Vacation Rentals.

Join me at The Crab Shack on January 28th and February 4th at 6 p.m. for a brief lecture and some Q and A. These talks are free and open to the public. I'll try to be interesting.

New Painting Detail

A sneak peak of a new painting I'm working on. Any guesses what it might be?

HINT: it's actually not an animal portrait.

Floral Workshop - Tampa, Florida

Artist friends, I have one workshop left in Florida in 2019 that isn't sold out.

I'm teaching a floral painting class March 2nd - 3rd in Tampa, Florida, sponsored by the Tampa Regional Artists at the Old Hyde Park Art Center.

It's already about a third full, so register now to save your spot: http://bit.ly/Patrick-Saunders-TRA-Floral-Workshop

Truly learning to paint means learning to paint anything. No gimmicks for painting specific things, no shortcuts, just good practice. If you are a beginner, I can get you started, and if you are more advanced, I can take you to the next level. Come paint with me.

Throwback Thursday - Towers and Water Towers

For #throwbackthursday, the first painting I did after Kimberly and I moved to New York in 2006. This was the view from the window of our first apartment in Chelsea, Manhattan. After living in the Midwest our entire lives, this was a very different world for us, but it was the start of something great. 

"Towers and Water Towers" (oil on board, 19"x26.25"), is now available for purchase at my online art gallery:

Pet Portrait Commission - Perry the Yorkshire Terrier

It's always wonderful to see someone's eyes light up when they view a commissioned painting for the first time, especially when they didn't even know it was coming.

"Perry" (oil on linen, 12"x16") was a Christmas gift from a great family to a beloved wife, mother, and grandmother. Kimberly and I were honored to be there for the surprise.
