Shelley Patrick is a skilled, young Muscogee (Creek) Native American artist who combines traditional iconography in bold, modern ways to a stunning effect. Here she's gone with the brilliant hot pink and apple green colors of the silk and painted a circle motif on the center front bisected by the coat opening and flanked by two "wing" designs radiating outward. Her color palette of cool yellow, and apple green with fine gold lines is simply perfect!
The strong symmetry of the front of the coat is broken on the backside. Patrick has painted a vertical banner of carefully rendered zig zag patterns just to the right side of the center on the back, bringing a delightful element of surprise to the overall effect. Her choice of a few strong and well-placed design elements complements the strong colors of the fabric and allows it to really shine, showing a skilled use of restraint.
Can't you just imagine yourself in this stunner over a slim black silhouette with fine gold jewelry for a special evening out? This one is a real head-turner!
