Back in the Saddle

Pink Whispers
8 x 10 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

I've been away visiting my mom in NJ and doing some other travel recently. I haven't painted for over a week and have been going thru withdrawal. ( Yes, painting can be addictive).  Yesterday, when I got back home I was anxious to get back in the saddle. It was kind of late to set up a whole still life,  so I did this 8 x 10 oil painting from a photo I had of roses in the garden to at least get my brushes wet again. Was shooting to have it be simple and fresh, capturing the light and impression of the garden setting.

Today,  I'm off to buy some fresh flowers to get back to some still life set ups with some of the new "props" I picked up during my travels this summer. It's good to be home.
