Original watercolor - unframed Image size 15" h x 11" w "The pineapple is a type of Bromeliad, a succulent plant in the tropics," shares Patrice. "From Spanish Moss (known here as Pele’s Hair) to the Pineapple, bromeliads come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Once grown in far greater numbers on the islands, the pineapples have long been a symbol of hospitality. In the spirit of hospitality, here’s my favorite Carrot Cake Recipe (I make it in muffin tins):"

Original watercolor, matted and framed 37" h x 27" w Image size 22.75" h x 15" w "Heliconia were the subject of the first watercolor painting for which I won an award; that painting was titled, “Coming Out of Hiding," shares Patrice. "My intention with this painting was to make the heliconia even bolder. I am making a statement about being bold, brave, and your beautiful self in life. It’s about being more and more visible in the process."

Original watercolor - unframed 22" h x 30" w "This painting speaks of the wind as it plays with the waves crashing upon the shore. It evokes an understanding that change is inevitable. No matter how sudden or unexpected it might be, we do best when we welcome it into our lives. Learning to go along with change, no matter how subtle or crashing it comes, is to learn to live gracefully." - Patrice Federspiel
Original watercolor - unframed 30" h x 22" w "The fronds portrayed here are from the palmetto palms trees growing in the islands," says Patrice Federspiel. "Before the fronds fall from the trees, they turn a beautiful golden brown. Our harsh sun further bleaches them to tints of silver, gray, green, and sometimes blue. I often photograph piles of leaves along the side streets while I’m out walking. My inspiration comes in the many ways these leaves wither yet manage retain their innate beauty in the face of death. This painting speaks of the importance of our past, present, and our future when our life is woven together. Each part of our life informs the other. This means that our future hopes and dreams help to shape our present, just as our past and present experiences do. Each aspect of life is important."

Whether it be the world of family and friends, or the broader world in general, stand in the sunlight of your being and shine brightly. This is how we become the light we need to see and feel."

Original watercolor with white mat and matte black frame Coming soon! "The Big Island of Hawaii enchants me," says Patrice Federspiel. "As soon as the plane touches down, I relax. My breath deepens and my smile widens. Hawaii Island is BIG, expansive, Deep, Wide, and Spacious. On my last trip to Hawaii, I noticed places the lava had been cut through to create a road. There were definite spaces between the layers of lava. Some of the spaces alongside the road might have been created years apart, others, days apart, still others formed by the flow of the molten lava as it moved quickly across plains of previously cooled lava. The spaces between the flows captured my attention. At the time, I wasn’t sure why, but I noticed them. Now I’m wondering if it wasn’t a signal to me to create more space, more time in my busy life and schedule. Is it time for you to create more space in your life too? Are you creating enough spaces between your “doings” to catch your breath?"
Original watercolor - unframed Image size 13" h x 13" w "Most of the plumeria seen on the islands are white with golden centers," shares Patrice. "They do come in a variety of colors from deep maroon to pink to rainbow. The Rainbow Plumeria seems especially suited to the islands where rainbows abound — especially during our rainy seasons. These rainbows live for a day on the tree before falling to the earth. Rainbows don’t last long, but their magical qualities bring joy to us no matter how long they last."

Original watercolor - framed 37.5" h x 19.5" w "These leaves, fallen from the ulu (breadfruit) tree were in various stages and shades of decay, from silver to red to brown — they captivated me. The shapes, the sizes, and the way they were layered one on top of the other looked beautiful," shares Patrice. "The title, Seasons of Change, refers to changes in my subject matter, my color palette, and in the contours of the paper — something I’ve never changed before."

Original watercolor - framed 26" h x 21.5" w "Ulu (Breadfruit) grows on enormous trees with beautiful green leaves. The fruit is very starchy, but it takes on the flavor of whatever seasonings you use. They’re wonderful when smoked over an open fire," shares Patrice. "The title, Second Chances, refers to the second chance at a longer life offered to these leaves through my painting."

Original watercolor in walnut frame 36" h x 29" w "The plant portrayed here is the White Bird of Paradise also known as the Travelers Palm. Though not technically a palm at all, it’s graceful leaves branch out in a giant fanned shape," says Patrice. "I have tried to paint this beautiful plant before, but because of its stature, when I tried to paint it realistically, I portrayed the top alone, forgetting the trunk. Suddenly it hit me — I could paint all of the parts of the plant that I like the most — the trunk, the flower, and the leaves, in a new way. I would show you my favorite parts of the plant, each to their best advantage. The Sum of the Parts celebrates the leaves along the side, the flowers in the middle, and the beauty of the trunk on top."
