Description: Contemporary realist painter Patricia Hansen is a keen observer of nature who responds to and records the look and presence of animals. Here she turns her attention to two cats whose attitude and high perch overlooking the city gives them the sense of being guardians of all they survey.|
This square oil painting on linen entitled "Sentinels" is witness to Hansen's brilliant technical ability--not to mention her unexpected selection of subject matter. View larger image of this painting that combines an interior scene with a cityscape.
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."
Patricia Hansen, born in Georgia, is represented in collections including: Coca Cola, HBO, American Express, CIT Corporation, New Orleans Museum of Fine Art and Tulane University. View more paintings by Patricia Hansen. See the photo-interview with portrait & still life painter Patricia Hansen
