Roses & Sugar Bowl

 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello

Been down in St. Simons for the past few days studying with one of my favorite artists and instructors, Robert Johnson,   I met him 2 years ago and have studied with him about every 6 months since then, so this was my 4th workshop with him. I do like to try out new instructors and approaches, but I also think once you find someone who is a good instructor and who you feel aligned with in terms of aesthetics and approach, it's good to go deeper  and stick with that guidance for awhile to develop a sense of focus and mastery instead of being all over the place.  It's also important to take a break in between workshops to digest what you've learned and integrate that into your own style and process.

 The workshop was graciously hosted by Mary Anderson of the Anderson Gallery in St. Simons. If you haven't been to the gallery,  it is exceptional, featuring exquisite work by 20+ representational artists.   Mary is passionate about art and the gallery business and you can feel that being in the gallery. She has also put together a great workshop program featuring top notch artists from all over the country.

I will post my other new paintings completed during the workshop next week.

Here I am hard at work painting from the still life set up.
