At the George Peabody Library.

The Event Coordinator for the George Peabody Library was very helpful and friendly.

The George Peabody Library is one of the most stunning libraries in the world.

Patricia visited the library 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 all done live, Patricia captured the bride dancing with her father and the groom dancing with his mother.

A lovely wedding reception with drapery and a farm-to-table and dancing under the stars theme.

Patricia chose to set up her easel in the dining room and painted the beautifully appointed room until the couple's wedding ceremony.

Their wedding ceremony was a block away, so attended their Ceremony and took photos to add to the painting later.

Patricia took a reference photo of the couple's first dance to add to the painting later, as the dancing was inaccessable.

After the reception, Patricia took the painting to her studio.

There were two mirrors in the dining room, Patricia painted the wedding ceremony in one, and the first dance in the other.

She also added the Flower Girls, as well as the bride's dog, and a few important guests.

The Studio work took several weeks.

Patricia began this by painting the Chuppah. It was her intention to paint the Ceremony live. However, at the last minute there was not enough space, so she took photographs for reference.

Patricia moved her easel into the ballroom and spent the remainder of the evening painting the reception.

After the reception, Patricia took the painting to her studio where she added the Ceremony and the likenesses of the bride and groom.

She also added the Wedding Party, as well as the bridesmaids and the bride's beloved dog.

The Studio work took several weeks.

Fortieth Birthday Party Celebration
Baltimore, June 2013.



 

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.

A selection of Mr. Gilbert's work was on view at the Vollmer center February 2013. Notable guests at the opening included the Director of the Baltimore Museum of Art.

This painting will be exhibited in the Vollmer center at the Artist in Residence show in November 2013. It is for sale. Proceeds will partially benefit the Cylburn Association.

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!

  -   Justin Batoff, founder of The Old Line Society
