Patrick Saunders Fine Arts Floral Painting - Olmsted Plein Air Invitational Collectors' Preview Gallery

The Olmsted Plein Air Invitational Collectors' Preview Gallery goes live today. My submission is one of my favorite flowers, and also one that I find the most challenging.

I've always considered gerbera daisies to be my nemesis. Maybe it's the struggle to get past their iconic sunburst shape and see them as they really are, or maybe it's the battle to avoid painting all of the individual petals. In this piece, I challenged myself even further by painting a light flower on a light background.
"Gerbera" • Oil on Linen • 6"x8" • Available at
I will be painting in person throughout the Atlanta, Georgia, area April 18th through the 25th. The show has a virtual catalog and online store (link above) where collectors can learn more about this piece, and all of the preview works of art for sale.
