Many people in the neighborhood were joyful to see the welcoming smile of the mailman, Patrick Ramos. He had a engaging way with the neighbors since many were from other countries, for instance, China and India. When they became residents in San Jose, California. He made people feel welcome when they moved into a new home and did not speak English well .
In talking with our mailman, I leaned he had been in art school. On occasion he taught art in nearby school. If we ever gifted him for anything, he would send a selfie drawing of himself for a thank you. One day he asked me if I would do a portrait of him.
The collage Mr. Patrick, shows the walks and art and personal style of our welcoming mailman.
It is a collage and acrylic painted piece__Mixed Media_ Mounted on a Board.
