Patrick Romelli born in Cincinnati Ohio January 25, 1940 is a professional illustrator who found inspiration and romance through oil painting. Patrick has been drawing and painting in all mediums from the early age of 5. After years of commercial illustrating and experiments with pen and ink, watercolors, acrylics and pastels, he was able to unleash his personal concepts of art through oils. Patrick’s paintings described in his own words— “Utilizing the ideas of impressionism, my paintings capture the essence and mood of a subject with color, harmony and texture.
Compositionally I draw the observers eye to wonder about the looser supportive strokes of the painting. Like poetry, I paint to invoke an emotional response to my paintings and am less interested in presenting detailed factual likenesses. If an observer of my paintings feels happiness, sadness, or personally reflects with the content I’ve painted then my goal has been reached.”
