Pastel Oceanscapes - Patricia Gray


Just off the easel. There are some paintings that come easily and some that take a bit more perseverance. I have been straddling the gulf between realism in my plein air paintings and a more impressionist way of painting from memory and emotion in the studio. Both have their merits. But the best for me is when I can lose myself between the two and let the emotion take over without thinking it too much. The ocean has that effect on me.
My inspiration for these pieces was a trip to Haida Gwaii, a remote northern location in Canada just below Alaska. But it could easily be many different locations. Where does it remind you of?

Patrica Gray Interior Design Blog 3.5 Million Visitors

As 2016 is drawing to a close, I find myself reflecting on the past year. In the spirit of remembrance I would like to spend the last few days of the year looking back at a few of my fondest memories and highlights from the year…..

My interior design blog has just reached a readership of 3,500,000. I started blogging in 2007 and who would have known at that time where it would lead. I have made so many friends and connected with wonderful clients through blogging. Even though I don’t post as often as I used to I still take time to keep in touch. I am now connected to many of my old blogging friends on Instagram and we continue to stay in touch…..what a wonderful world social media is to connect us all around the world. Happy new year to all!

Vancouver Yaletown Penthouse


FAMILY FRIENDLY PENTHOUSE
This is a penthouse project for a couple with two small children in Yaletown, Vancouver. It has a fantastic view that was a little overwhelming when I started on the project. There was nothing to keep your focus inside the space. I decided that I needed to be bold in my choice of finishes. 

I grounded the space by adding teak panelling to the raised ceilings to mirror the teak of the floor. The furnishings and accessories were kept to a minimum to not detract from the view. The finishes had to child friendly. The dining table and countertops are Caesarstone, which is virtually indestructible. The dining room chairs were upholstered in white leatherette. The chairs are studded at the top of each leg. The chandelier was picked for its fun and whimsy. The sofa is real leather and the area carpet is wool from Belgium. The ottoman is upholstered in Cashmere, which isn't exactly child friendly but my client fell in love with it.

The back wall of the cooktop is a wonderful piece of Granite that I hand picked from the supplier, and it was with much difficulty, that they were able to install it as a slab - in one piece with no seams. It weighed approx. 600 pounds and had to be taken up to the top of the building. It looks fabulous, and hangs on the wall like a magnificent piece of artwork. I also wanted to use warm colouring & natural products to connect the space with the earth energy. The colour of the granite picks up the colour of the teak and has these beautiful charcoal grey veins running through it. I matched the paint and carpet colour to this gray veining in the granite to further accentuate the granite. The effect is better when you are in the space. You feel like you are on top of the world but at the same time the space is very warm and enveloping. The clients are happy with the end result and they are finding it family friendly and good for their frequent entertaining.

Definition of Abstract Art

Definition of Abstract Art from the Tate Modern: A cluster of theoretical ideas lies behind abstract art. The idea of art for art's sake – that art should be purely about the creation of beautiful effects. The idea that art can or should be like music – that just as music is patterns of sound, art's effects should be created by pure patterns of form, colour and line. The idea, derived from the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, that the highest form of beauty lies not in the forms of the real world but in geometry. The idea that abstract art, to the extent that it does not represent the material world, can be seen to represent the spiritual. In general abstract art is seen as carrying a moral dimension, in that it can be seen to stand for virtues such as order, purity, simplicity and spirituality.
