The Artist

 

ARTIST'S STATEMENT


As I paint from my emotions, the act of painting is who I am. It is a line, a color, a shape, or an effect of light that inspires me. My spirit then directs me through the painting. Time embellishes my approach. In the end the paintings and I have traveled through much effort and feeling. They are a part of who I am.

 


While viewers experience the painting, I hope they see me looking back through the brushstrokes, transcending time. It is the legacy I wish to leave for future human kind.

I enjoy painting in oil, watercolor, acrylic and pastel. My style ranges from representational to abstract. When I look upon my subject, I paint from those feelings arising within me.

I have painted continually since 1962, and am now able to dedicate my life exclusively to my art.



MY MISSION STATEMENT

My desire is to have others experience my art as a part of their lives – a connection between people, generations and time.

A Painter's Journey
By Patricia Wilson-Schmid


Partake of life through all the bloom
of each and every cycle.
And in the morning of each part,
anticipate the glories.

Look back upon the evenings.
Ask what of worth to keep.
Move a level onward,
renewed and wiser still.

Grow in heart.
Prepare to leave a mark, a word, a thought.
Transcend your span to be fulfilled
in future human kind.
