Patti Lucas Hopkins - Maryland Artist

ABOUT PATTI LUCAS HOPKINS

I am an oil painter and my style is representational. My paintings are what I love and live around. I try to capture scenes in my natural surroundings.

ENVIRONMENT

Patti Lucas Hopkins. Maryland artistI live on a farm on the Little Choptank River on Marylandʼs Eastern Shore, with my husband, dogs, and chickens, surrounded by wild geese, deer, fox and wild turkeys. With a passion for the land and water around me, I am developing my oil paintings to express that environment. I take inspiration from the changing seasons, the cycle of crops, migrations and human activities such as working the water, sailing, and hunting.

After seventeen years of oil painting rural landscapes, bay views, figures in the landscape and still life, I continue to study and work on capturing mood with light and shadow in my paintings. I love painting with oil and continue to explore new ways to build my paintings to another level.

INSPIRATION

I admire the Hudson River School painters, Cape Cod School of Art painters, Winslow Homer, Edgar Payne, the Wyeths and many Impressionist artists.
