Anemone Japonica at Foresteria

Oil on Linen
The Forestiera' is an ancient building in the gardens, used as a guest house. The Director of the Garden, Lauro Marchetti has given me the use of the building as my studio. Just outside was a bed of white Anemone Japonica', at the end of their bloom, planted with iris. This painting is painted life-size, and although it is unfinished, with the flowers not rendered, I'm thinking of leaving it as it is in this photo.
