"Two Woodpeckers in The World" Art Coat by Shelley Patrick

Here's a beautiful piece by a talented young Muscogee artist with a simple elegance. Shelley Patrick has painted an intricate swirling border pattern that circles the hem of the coat and is based in traditional Muscogee designs. On the center back she has created an appealing emblem of two woodpeckers standing facing one another in a circular motif. We love that although the emblem is a mostly symmetrical design, the two bird figures are different from each other, suggesting two individuals together in the world. It is a message that is both simple and sweet.
Her choice of gold paint echoes the gold silk lining of the coat, and her painting is exquisitely rendered in fine lines. The forest green silk of the shell suggests the woodland home of the woodpeckers, creatures that are immeasurably stronger than their size would have us believe as they peck huge holes in hardwood trees in search of food and shelter. 
Wear this quietly strong piece over basic black with gold jewelry, or over a column of gold for a very special evening out.
