Featured Paintings by Patrick King
Children’s Stoves – Oil on Linen 40 x 60
I crossed paths with Patrick when I featured one of his T-shirts in my post, 25 T-shirts for Artists and Wannabes. I later found out that Patrick is also a talented painter. Patrick’s paintings are rich in exaggerated color depicting typical suburban American scenes and adding a bit tension it.

Colin MacDonald (singer of the band The Trews) by Nancy Desrosiers
oil on a canvas
I have not featured a painting in a while so I was glad when Nancy sent this to me. I love how she has captured the feeling of being at the concert. The singer is full of life, the lighting is amazing and Nancy’s painting style sparks movement on the canvas. The black background feels a little flat compared to the rest of the painting, but it could be that the background looks better in real life and does not translate well in a photo. In any case, this is not something that keeps me from enjoying the work. This is a strong painting and Nancy does a great job of bringing the singer to life.
