This is a transitional series representing the artist's growth from the Eastern Shore scenics of his early years to paintings that act as portraits, whether they are of people, places, or things. These portraits speak of the transition of the Eastern Shore culture with both the patina of loss and the glow of the possible future.
These important and transitional paintings lead to the series Another View. Painted over the course of decades, they represent the strength of the people of the Eastern Shore.
The Eastern Shore of Maryland the part of Maryland that divided from the rest of the state by the Chesapeake Bay. The culture and heritage of this area are unique, in part because of its separation from the mainland by the Bay. Ocean City is found in Worcester County, Maryland's only county with coast along the Atlantic Ocean.
Patrick Henry is a true Eastern Shore native and has been interpreting its beauty for decades. These paintings allow the viewer to experience the natural and cultural beauty of this unique area through an artist's eyes.
Another View: Untold Stories began with inspiration from vintage photographs that came under my guardianship since 1998. My wife Velda’s Aunt Maude passed in 1998 and Velda rescued Aunt Maude’s photo collection from being thrown out. The people in the photographs were her relatives, or friends of her relatives. As years passed I’ve had so many others share their vintage photo collections for me to record. Collectively, the images reveal a story that writers of history could normally pass by.
Glen Riddle Farm was a large horse farm in Berlin, Maryland. Located on what today is Route 50 between Ocean City and Berlin, it was owned by a wealthy textile businessman Samuel D. Riddle.

In 1912 Daniel Trimper purchased a massive carousel from the Herschell-Spillman Company in North Tonawanda, NY. The carousel's forty-five animals, three chariots and one rocking chair were driven by a steam engine; rides originally cost just a nickel. One-hundred years later, the ride is one of the oldest still operating carousels in the nation.
Over the years the Trimpers added numerous rides.
