John and Bekki Cook / by Pat Matthews


"We became the proud owners of a Patrick Matthews painting in 2008. We had visited Waxlander Gallery on many occasions studying Patrick's paintings because we were convinced his work would be perfect for our home in Santa Fe. His paintings are so vivid and full of life that they enliven any space. We have Patrick's painting of birch trees at the end of a long gallery in our home where it anchors a display of paintings by several well known artists.

His brilliant use of color and his ability to project a feeling of intimacy with nature is the essence of fine art. Guests in our home never fail to exclaim ove Patrick's painting with pleasure. More importantly, it gives us great pleasure every single day. We are absolutely delighted with the quality and energy of our painting and will enjoy it forever."
