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 reflects their pure pleasure in a summer day.|
This oil painting on linen canvas entitled "Bird Watching" is witness to Hansen's remarkable technical ability and her interesting approach to composition. View larger 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."
