8 x 8 oil painting
by Pat Fiorello
A friend of mine a fellow artist and instructor, Deb Nadelhofer, stopped by to visit last night after teaching her afternoon painting class. She thoughtfully brought me the flowers from a still life set up her class had been working on earlier in the day. The peonies were on their last legs, after being under hot studio lights all day, lots of petals falling off, but I managed to hold on to them for one more day. Their last hurrah as a model and inspiration for yet one more artist. Spring Peonies, above was what they inspired me to paint.
