8 x 10 oil painting
by Pat Fiorello
This one was done with palette knives on gessoboard (which is a very slick surface). Between the smoothness of the metal knives, the slipperiness of oil paints and the smooth surface of the gessoboard, things are slipping and sliding very fast. But the energy of that is really fun. I titled this painting "Hydrangea Burst"- it seems to be bursting with the energy and movement it was painted with.
