Jean Patiky's Over the Hill on Block Island Collection

"Over the Hill on Block Island" by Jean Patiky is a collection long anticipated by Colors of Nature. 

Jean Patiky’s work has appeared in many juried, group and solo shows. Her artwork has been displayed in galleries and museums including The Metropolitan Museum in Coral Gables, Florida, The Miami Watercolor Society, and more. Her paintings have been sold in fine stationery stores, book stores and museums across the U.S. ​

Colors of Nature and Jean Patiky met at the Rhode Island Watercolor Society in May 2014, where Colors of Nature presented its new line of vegan and cruelty-free watercolor paints to the Watercolor Society’s members. From her Baker’s Dozen Jean has made a wonderful collection of paintings to add to her already beautiful and extensive accomplishments.

The book, 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, by Patricia Schultz has this to say about Block Island, RI, USA.

“Unpretentious Block Island [Rhode Island, USA] is a barefoot and bicycle kind of place, with rolling green hills, hundreds of freshwater ponds, and dramatic 250-foot bluffs that remind many of Ireland. So bewitching is it that The Nature Conservancy was inspired to call the island ‘one of the last great places in the western hemisphere.’”
