Things Are Looking UP!

Things Are Looking UP!
12 x 12 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello


Over the summer I taught a painting workshop in Italy. the day I arrived and checked into my hotel, I realized I was just a block away from one of the world's oldest botanical gardens which is in Florence Italy ( built approx. 1545).

I stopped by that afternoon and  saw these luscious garden roses hanging form a trellis and new I wanted to paint them.

Since I came back home, I've been thinking this painting.  Initially I was going to paint literally what I had in the photo . I did like the flowers against the buildings to suggest Italy. But then I thought, why not simplify the design and just focus on the flowers against the sky.   I took the photo and kind of mapped out how it could be without the buildings in the background and gave it a shot.

I may still do another version with the buildings in the background, but that will be for another day.
