A wedding and reception at the Four Seasons, Baltimore

Victoria Claussens and her team created out-of-this world floral displays which Patricia carefully included in the painting.

Patricia painted the wedding ceremony, then added the reception to the painting, superimposing them. The band is in the upper left, in front of the enormous floral display with hanging candles. The mother and father of the bride are depicted as they made their moving speeches. And the grandparents of the bride are painted dancing together.

Congratulations to the Bride and Groom!

The first Live Event Painting ever done at the Walters Art Museum.

Patricia visited the museum in advance and spent several hours sketching it.

She then pondered how to capture the architecture as well as the event, and did sketches out of her head.

This painting was started in her studio, then continued throughout the Ceremony and the Reception.

Painted Live at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club

Patricia set up her easel in the dining room and painted the Wedding Ceremony and view from the large bay windows. It was too hot to paint outside.

After Cocktail hour, Patricia moved her easel to another part of the room and painted the Reception.

Patricia took a reference photo of the couple's first dance to add to the painting later.

Betsy Robinson's Bridal Collection commissioned Patricia to paint A Day in the Life of painting.

Patricia painted in the store on Sunday, May 3, 2015 then through the next three weeks. She met the staff and photographed those who were to be included in the painting. Betsy especially wanted the Seamstresses included. They are behind a wall, and not visible to the public. So Patricia depicted them in the foreground of the painting sewing, altering, and ironing.

With permission from the customer, Patricia also photographed a Bride being fitted for her gown as reference for the painting.

The Studio work took two months to complete.

Patricia painted A Day in the Morning of painting in Ms. Emily's class at the Greenspring Montessori School.

Patricia painted in the classroom in December 2014 over several weeks. She first painted the classroom, then added children as she saw them working around the classroom.

Children asked Patricia lots of questions about her painting and found themselves in the painting.

The Studio work took three months to complete.

Patricia painted this live at Baltimore's famous Hippodrome Theatre during the "Hon Ball" fundraiser.

That night the painting was featured as the big ticket item and auctioned off to benefit the children at the School of the Cathedral by CBS television anchor Mary Bubala.

Patricia set up her easel on stage at 10am and painted the theatre as Rouge Catering and the Hon Ball Committee set up for the 7:30pm event. Patricia stopped her painting when the live auction began at 9:30pm.

The auction winners were painted into the work of art.

A framed print of the painting was put on display at the School of the Cathedral.

Both the ceremony with Huppa, and the reception were captured together in the painting since they took place within an hour of one another in the same room. The moment as the Rabbi is reading to the couple, and the future bride's mother and father give her away are included. The Ketubah, which was removed after the ceremony, is included on its easel. The bride and groom are also in the foreground.

People could watch her as she was painting ... It was a really cool touch, and now we have a beautiful painting of our wedding... it's so different.  -   The Bride

...what a fantastic memorialization it is! As an Art History major at Johns Hopkins, I can particularly appreciate your depiction of the Solstice in the City porch party. And equally impressive is how you were able to paint the scene en plein air with the heat index in the mid to upper 90s!
