Music in the Air

Debbie Patrick

February 8–March 2, 2019
Reception: February 8 • 5–8pm

As a “military brat” who traveled extensively, I have always been fascinated by people in other cultures - their unique faces and personalities. From early on, the main focus of my work has been portraiture. At the age of 14, I studied briefly with Guy Bernardo, and after receiving my first portrait commission while in high school, I was hooked on becoming an artist. I married into a very musical family and, not having a single ounce of musical ability, became an avid listener and lover of all types of music. Unable to create music, I turned instead to painting to express my appreciation of both musicians and dancers, trying to capture them in the act of doing what they love. I enjoy working in the studio, doing figure studies while listening to anything from blues and rock to opera and classical. 

The paintings in “Music in the Air” depict a variety of performers - professionals onstage with dramatic lighting, casual outdoor street musicians, dancers waiting in the wings. Alternating between oils and pastels, I let the subject and the quality of light I wish to achieve dictate which medium I use.I always try to capture a subject’s unique personality or mood, especially as reflected in their eyes or a certain gesture.

As a member of several art organizations, including the Pastel Society of the West Coast (Distinguished Artist status), Pastel Society of America, the Marin Society of Artists and Golden Gate Marin Artists, I have exhibited and won awards in juried shows across the United States.
