Upper Gallery: PATRICIA NEWTON
Fine Art Oil Painting
In Patricia’s own words:
“I knew early on, that art would somehow become an intrinsic part of my life!
“Although a career path would lead me in a different direction, I worked hard, painted when time permitted and raised a family. I moved to the Central Coast of California, where I fell in love with rolling hills that reach to the sea and began to pursue lifelong dreams of becoming a professional artist. The local landscape has had a profound impact on the artwork I create in oil.
“My style is representational, utilizing a glazing technique of many thin layers to create a translucent effect that provides depth and emanates light from my paintings. My current body of work has been inspired by the powerful movement of the sea and magnificent coastline.
“During the last thirty-five years. I’ve become an award winning artist, a member of The Portrait Society of America, Oil Painters of America and currently serve as President of Morro Bay Art Association.”
