Tuscan Flower Pot

Tuscan Flower Pot
8 x 6 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Been away on vacation in Florida this week and did not bring my paints, so sharing a little study I did awhile back.

Even though I wasn't painting while on vacation, I find I never  totally disconnect from being an artist. While traveling I'm visiting local museums and galleries (and even art supply stores!), soaking in inspiration and taking photo's of future subjects to paint. I was in Sarasota and Naples, two towns that have a lot to offer in terms of the Arts. And it was great to be someplace sunny and filled with lots of flowering plants and green trees as a bit of a change of scenery from the long,cold, icy winter we've had (even here in Atlanta).

Here are a few photo's from the trip to share a bit of sunshine with you today.

Happy to see some colorful, sun-drenched flowers!
