Take time to smell the roses

Roses & Snaps

Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Today's study is a simple bouquet of yellows, pinks & whites. Sometimes I just find a color palette I like and then try to get flowers that fit that. This light combination of colors has a soft, romantic feel.
 With Thanksgiving upon us, it's a good reminder to take time to smell the roses in life- the people, places and things your are grateful for. 

 Thank you for  following my blog and sharing what I'm up to with my art. It is a personal joy to make art, but it makes a difference to share it with others too.
Hope everyone has a Thanksgiving filled with love and gratitude.
