Pienza Light

Pienza Light
8 x 10 Oil Painting

A second in the series about sunlight. This scene was in Pienza, Italy. I was attracted by the sunlight on the plants and the patterns of light and shadow created by the distinctive architecture.

Pienza Balcony

Pienza Balcony
9 x 12 Oil Painting

I've culled down over 1300 photo's from my recent trip to Italy and I've selected some favorites to begin a new series. Probably no surprise, I love scenes that depict light and shadow and love plants with flowers that add a pop of color agains all the neutral stonework typical in Italian architecture.

This scene is from a charming little town Pienza.

French Whites

French Whites
12 x 16 Oil Painting on Gallery Wrap Canvas
by Pat Fiorello
Saturday was my first day back in the studio after my 2 weeks in Italy.  Had left a photo of these flowers (set up outdoors while on a past trip to France)  on my easel as the first inspiration for when I got back.  Put on some finishing touches today. Ready to get on to painting some of the new inspiration from Italy soon.
