One of my best friends when I first started working at Ford Motor Co in the late 70s, early 80s was a brilliant young woman named Patty Sun!
There were only three or four of us women engineers in Heavy Truck Engineering back then… so it was unusual that we all became rather close friends both in and out of work.
I was remembering Patty when I painted this series of two panels… over the years, we’ve lost touch but I remember loving the oriental flair with which she lived her life and infused so much of that elegance into our friendship. Patty stood up with me at my wedding back in 1987; I will always remember her with love and appreciation.
This is a painting made with Golden acrylics, Jacquard acrylics, mica, watercolor, walnut ink and FW acrylic ink on heavyweight Bristol (vellum finish) paper.
