"Fruit in a Purple Bowl"

If you have been checking out my paintings over the last six months or more, you may have noticed that I often paint an aura or energy field around the subject. I'm not sure why I do this. What is it that compels artists to attach to these kind of themes? I just know I like doing it and it feels right.

A couple more paintings are in the works, and I'm thinking it is time to do another self-portrait having done the last one in 2005. So there is a busy week ahead of me and I'm loving every minute of it!


  1. Good for you, Patti. And we are enjoying the results of your loving work!

  2. You ROCK, Patti! I have always LOVED your work -and the energy field outlining - very cool. Looking forward to seeing the most recent you!

  3. Love your work, Patti. I find it interesting how one can create art and discover things about oneself just from the process of creating it. This is a beautiful piece. Love to you today, O

  4. Totally fab again Patti - so love your colours AND the auras make it yours! Look forward to the next batch...

  5. I love the colours and the soft round shapes. Have fun drawing your self-portrait, I'm looking forward to it.

  6. Your work is always mind-blowing. I love your use of colour. Its so bold and funky!

  7. omg I LOVE the "moonlight tree" below.
    You are so talented...I cannot wait to see your self-portrait.
    The aura touch is like your own personal signiture.
    And thanks for the great encouraging comment you left for me.

  8. Hey Patti, I just love all of your paintings...I love that they are big, bright, bold and so colorful. Every time I come to your blog I want to run to Michaels and grab lots of paint off of the shelves and just see what I can do!

  9. Hi Patti,
    I love that you're inspired to paint auras around the focal point of your paintings. Wow! Talk about "Painting from the Source"...I'd say that's a big signature of the Source!. Are you familiar with the book of the same name, by Aviva Gold? And I love all the bright, bold colors...and your style of creativity. Thank you Patti!
