Sadly, Gene Patterson passed away in 2007.

His book,

"A Book for The Curious Painter"

is no longer in print


We are keeping Gene's web page on the PPIO web site to honor his memory. Below are some photos of Gene's art work.
Porcelain Paintings by Gene

I know that Gene did not brag about himself so allow me to do it for him. He was not only very knowlegable about the technical side of overglaze painting , he was an extremely talented artist who designed wonderfully complex pieces. His work is a beautiful combination of precision and freedom, delicate, yet dramatic.

Enjoy this gallery of his work and gather inspiration.
