Art is How You Think
The tagline ART IS HOW YOU THINK was conceived quite organically and as a defining statement of who I am as an Artist and how I approach my creative process. Born from my realization that art is really how I think, ART IS HOW YOU THINK is reflected in my various art brands.
Patrick-Earl™️ was created in 1995 in honor of my late father Earl A. Barnes, Jr. I wanted to recognize the extraordinary importance and influence he had, and still has, in my life. In merging my father’s and my first names with a literal hyphen, I was creating a symbolic representation of a "hitch" and inviting my father to take this art journey with me.
