Kathy Anderson workshop -Pansies Galore!

Pansy Dance

Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Last week I spent a few days at the Scottsdale Artists School taking a workshop with Kathy Anderson. Like me, Kathy loves painting flowers and we spent 3 days surrounded by pansies from the local nursery.  Above and below are a couple of my paintings from the workshop.

Here I am on right with Kathy Anderson on left at the workshop. Kathy's demo painting is in the background and below is a closer peek at her amazing work.

Here is some of our inspiration- pansies galore- and a few geraniums too!


  1. Wow! I am loving pansy dance. My favorite- really wonderful fresh brushwork! Lucky you to get to do a workshop with Kathy Anderson. Another friend of mine, Mary Maxam was there too! Fun world.

  2. Pat,
    These are great! Don't you just love pansies in the winter.

  3. "Pansy Dance" is striking! It sounds like you had a great time in Scottsdale, and learned even more about painting beautiful flowers, Pat!
