…”There [in Patricia’s paintings of NYC] the world is both large, and small, neighborly without being intrusive. In works like “Spring, East Village,” or “Jefferson Market, Summer”, an effervescent warmth shines through. Apple trees depend onto the warm bluish asphalt. Dogs and children frolic under the umbrella of traffic lights that stretch across the city like trees in a leafy glade. Even in those landscapes in which there are no people…the attention to detail and warm colors give the urban climate an intimate atmosphere.”
