I often feel limited with the internet as a medium for presenting the work of so many artists.  There is simply no substitute for a live viewing.  Such is truly the case with paintings by Patricia Bellan-Gillen.  Her work is large in scale, (won’t fit in the back of your car), and every inch is attended to with precision and addictive detail.  I was fortunate enough to experience it in person at the Tinney Contemporary Gallery last winter.  I filed the experience under fabulous.
