Patricia Medvecky: An Exhibit of Watercolors

Patricia Medvecky has always had more than a casual interest in the arts, including great works but as life began to wind down, she decided to try creating some of her own. You will find that most of her paintings are centered around flowers. She chose watercolor as her primary medium because she loves the freshness, spontaneity, and delicate luminous color which is ideal for flower painting. Watercolors allows her to “capture the delicacy, sturdiness, and sheer beauty of one of nature’s most exquisite subjects”.

Patricia Medvecky lives in Salisbury, CT. She has a master’s degree from Hunter College in Education.
