It was love at first sight when my dear friend Patsy began painting 2 years ago… After much encouragement (and begging!) from friends, she’s launched a website, Rosecreek Road where prints of her artwork are for sale (finally!)
This past weekend she allowed me to invade her studio, ogle her artwork and ask a few questions…
Why the name Rosecreek Road?
My mom lived on a tobacco farm in Kentucky and it was on RoseCreek. When I first heard the name I knew one day I would name something that. I thought it might be a book.
What inspired you to begin painting?
I’ve always loved art, it fascinated me. My closest friend growing up was a watercolor artist and I would sit for hours and watch her. I never dreamed I’d one day paint.
What mediums have you used and which is your favorite?
I am the most comfortable with acrylics but I’m growing in confidence with watercolor.
Paint brush or palette knife?
Describe your painting style in 3 words:
Textured, shabby, whimsy
Do you have a favorite painting that you’ve done?
Is there a particular painter whose work you admire?
How do you sign your paintings?
How long does it take you to complete a painting?
Some I do in a day — some weeks. On the average it’s several days.
Describe your ideal studio atmosphere:
Cheery, good source of natural light, source of water, background music, room for my supplies.
