Four Seasons Baltimore Lobby Painting

Painting of the Four Seasons Baltimore Lobby, ©Patricia Bennett 2015
This painting was created for the General Manager of the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore.  He asked me to paint something symbolic of this beautiful, modern hotel as an image to use for cards for guests.

The Four Seasons Baltimore's lobby flowers are designed by J.J. Cummings Floral Design.

I painted on location several times in the lobby and worked on the painting in the studio.  The entire process took over a year.

Many hotel guests stopped to look at my painting and speak to me about it and their love of art.  A Prince showed me a beautiful photo he'd had taken of the lobby and he gave me a piece of chocolate.  The staff were really friendly and helpful, too.

Baltimore Country Club Painted Wedding Reception

Wedding Reception at the Baltimore Country Club, painted by Patricia Bennett, 24x36"
This is the final version of the painting of the wedding reception of Devin and Will at the Baltimore Country Club.

Through the generous permission of the photographer, Jessica Haley, I was able to use several of her photos as reference to fine-tune figures that were already in the painting and to add the mother/son dance.  Thank you Jessica!

The band, Jon Goska's group, was also great, Hero Entertainment.

The Baltimore Country Club is a very special place, full of tradition, and this particular room, wood-paneled, is gorgeous.  Also, I love how the bride's white dress lights up the whole room.

Congratulations to Devin and Will!
