FMA Holiday Party

FMA Holiday Party, 24x24, Patricia Bennett, December 2012
I painted this a few weeks ago at the Country Club of Harrisburg.  The floor was not actually yellow, that is artist's license.  This party has a great jazz band, they are in the left corner.

First Drawing for Artist in Residency at Cylburn Arbortum.

"Cylburn Mansion", 4x6", drawing, Patricia Bennett
I am honored to be the first Artist-in-Residence at Cylburn Arboretum in Baltimore City.  Officially, this begins in 2013.

Cylburn Arboretum, owned by Baltimore City and previously a wealthy estate, is home to a large variety of stunning trees and a striking mansion and stone outbuilding.  I visit Cylburn often with my family and it enriches our lives.

My goal is to capture the seasons and to make some good art and raise some money to help with maintenance and programs.

Wedding and Ceremony with Huppa!

Wedding and Ceremony
I recently painted this spectacular wedding.  It was in the Grand Ballroom at the Four Seasons, Baltimore.  Included is the ceremony, the Ketubah (marriage contract), and the reception afterwards.  The gold cake with white chocolate petals didn't make it, but the chandeliers and candelabra did.

The ceremony was very moving and beautiful.  Best wishes to the lovely couple.

Wedding Reception Painting in Hunt Valley

Wedding Reception Painting in Hunt Valley, Painted by Patricia Bennett

Mid-November 2012, I painted this wonderful wedding reception at a private home in Hunt Valley.  As I painted the view from the reception tent, the couple were officially married a few hundred yards away next to the lake.  The bride, dressed in white, also wore a rabbit-fur cloak.

By the time the reception began it was dark outside, so I was glad to have the landscape already painted.  Several family members are included, as well as a few artists and two peacocks who live a few hundred feet away in an elegant aviary.

Holiday Party at the Four Seasons, Baltimore

"Holiday Party, 2012," Patricia Bennett, 24x36" 

On Friday I painted an amazing party at the Four Seasons Hotel, Baltimore.  There was a 9 foot Christmas tree and blue lights and of course the view of the Inner Harbor out of the windows.  The flower arrangements had Christmas balls in them, as well as peacock feathers!
