Description: Realist painter Patricia Hansen shows off her virtuoso technique in this square still life with rose-colored hydrangeas, liles and two cats called "Joey and Cali". View detail. Hansen pulls off the difficult task of painting a work that is slightly larger than life-size with cats whose gestures and coat patterns are so specifically depicted that they seem able to walk off the canvas. View detail. As always, Hansen uses her superb color and compositional sense to make a painting that transcends its charming subject matter. View overall image.|
San Francisco Chronicle art critic Kenneth Baker wrote: "What makes Patricia Hansen a realist, more than just a fine representational painter, is that her paintings are a lesson in seeing."
