White Blossoms

White Blossoms
 8 x 10 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello


Today is September 1.  I decided to join in the September "30 in 30" challenge inspired by Artists Helping Artists to get back to a consistent rhythm of painting after a summer filled with lots of travel, commission projects, reorganizing my studio and other breaks to my more typical daily/weekly schedule. The challenge is not meant to be a rigid constraint of having to produce 30 paintings in a month, but more of a supportive encouragement to be painting in the studio each day. So don't know what the outcome will be, but willing to take on committing to some painting time each day for the next 30 days and see where that leads.

For this painting, there were no actual white blossoms, or even a photo but this was loosely inspired by my last painting of the garden roses, just chose to paint them white instead of the peachy color they actually were. Also after working on a much larger canvas, decided to go smaller and a much closer in view with just a suggestion of the vase.
