St. Simon's Light

St. Simon's Light
8 x 10 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Today did something completely different from all the individual flowers and bouquets so far this month.  Included flowers in a garden setting. Took one of my favorite watercolors done over 15 years ago and used that as the inspiration for an oil painting version of the scene. The scene was a section of Christ Church on St. Simon's Island. In the original painting I added hydrangeas which were not there- but I would have liked them to be, so added them. ( The benefit of artistic license to make the world the way you want it to look) . Here I pushed the garden even further to add more hydrangeas and complementary yellow & orange flowers. A made up garden - pieces of paint next to one another- which in context hopefully reads as a garden.
