At Rockport Art Association's Ron Straka's Class we were asked to do a copy of a work of an artist that we liked, and I chose to do one of Patrick Matthews' works that I saw in Santa Fe, NM. I enjoyed the process of making this "after" painting. His is very large, probably 4x8' but mine is 2x4'. Putting them side by side here is the first time I have been able to see the comparison, although the photo of mine is probably off-color a bit. I love his colors.
