123 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
Been away several weeks and happy to be getting back to my studio these past couple of days. To get "re-booted" I decided to treat myself to some special flowers from Cut Flowers a wholesaler in Atlanta.
I went in looking for white roses but to my surprise and delight they had peonies which I didn't expect to see this time of year (they can get them, but usually by special order).
Below are some of the steps start to finish as well as reference photos. The flowers changed a lot over 24 hours as you can see in the last shot.
