Garden Rose

Garden Rose
6 x 6 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Day 30 of the 30 in 30 Challenge.
It has been a busy month and the challenge has stretched me in new ways beyond being "reasonable" about finding time to paint. In addition to being in Italy for 10 days, I had 2 other conferences where I was tied up for the entire weekend, so it was really more like 30 in 15 days. So most of the paintings were small studies, a few of which I may scale up to larger versions.  and I had to get creative about getting up early to paint or painting in the evenings after I would have usually quit for the day. I'm  anxious to get back to painting a little bigger and having the luxury of no time constraints. I went out and bought a 24 x 24 canvas today for a painting I'll work on in October.  But tomorrow I think I'll take a break form painting for a day and come back fresh to start something new on Weds.


  1. Beautiful. I was stressed with thirty days of had fifteen days to do thirty paintings? Unimaginable. You deserve many congratulations.
