Characteristic of a pat, and in fact what makes it a pat, is the movement of the hand. Notice Daryl’s hand does not move. At all.

The works featured are by Louis Pons, and are on display right now at the Halles Saint-Pierre for the Art Brut exhibit. A lot of really amazing stuff, but these found object collage/paintings were by far my favorites.

Well, I do believe that’s a head shot, Mrs. Woodhull.
