Patrick Palmer - Family Bond IIPatrick Palmer Studio Tour

Such an interesting evening! A friend and I toured the art studio of Patrick Palmer. Patrick is the Dean of the Glassell School at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and a prominent member of the Houston art community.

Patrick's current exhibition is titled "Memory Grids" and (as is typical of his painting style) features heads...  Lots and lots and LOTS of heads.  Says Patrick, "Simply put, I love to paint;  I really love to paint the human head."  The painting pictured here is called "Memory Bond II".  To me it illustrates how all of us carry people from our past around with us in our daily lives.

Thank you, Patrick! It was fascinating to see your artwork, in the place where it was created, and to hear it discussed from your own point of view.
