Flower Study #47 - Giverny Morning

Flower Study #47
Giverny Morning
9 x 12
Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

This is one I've wanted to paint for a long time.  I took a photo of these floral arrangement sitting in front of a window in the place I was staying at in Giverny France about 4 years ago. I was teaching a workshop at Monet's Garden and staying a a French country house run by Art Study Giverny. The colors are change from my usual palette. I simplified the background out the window quite a bit from what was really there as I just wanted that as backdrop and atmosphere with the real focus on the flowers particularly the larger purple one.
