This is one of Patty’s first paintings. The vista depicts New Zealand fishermen casting lines into the water. The huge waves roll in one after another in vivid shades of every color of blue. Blooms and foliage reaching upward create a colorful foreground stage for a day of fishing from shore.
For the artist, the lush landscape and softer shapes remind her of what it felt like to be in such a beautiful place at such a peaceful time of day, so far away.
