About Patricia Seitz

Artist Statement: 
I enjoy painting from nature, animals, and man made items. I try to gather as much information as possible prior to beginning a painting. I like subjects whereby are in rich color, and light is of primary focus.  I like to be challenged by subject matter that presents a degree of difficulty. 

I begin a piece by studying, and sketching the subject. From that point, I apply all that information to the canvas.

I know a piece is done when I feel satisfied with the results.
When my work is going well, I am filled with a sense of accomplishment and joy.
When people see my work, I'd like them to enjoy the mood, brilliancy of color, and the dynamics of light play.
