8 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
Experimenting with some new approaches in the new year. I had done some Peonies last summer and my good friend, artist Carolyn Majewski asked me if I thought about cropping in on them and making them really big. I bought a large long format canvas but never got around to doing it but had it in the back of my mind( on the "someday" list). Today I did a "test drive" on a smaller 8 x 16 canvas to see how it would feel to do it a bit more abstractly. I have to say it was fun and freeing ( and a little scary at times) so thanks Carolyn for the suggestion to go out of my comfort zone.
It's dark out now so couldn't get a photo in daylight, so I apologize if this photo isn't the greatest. If I can get a better image tomorrow, I'll repost it.
