About Fresh Flowers

A pretty, mixed floral bouquet fills the canvas with joyful colour in this still-life painting by Pat Service. The Canadian artist explored the traditional art form in the 1990’s but in her own masterful, unique way. The palette is a colourful mix of pinks, purples, and white—each individual flower rendered in exquisite detail. A turquoise striped pattern serves as a backdrop giving this expressive piece a more modern look.

“There is a way of putting down paint that allows for hesitation and approximation but can end up being very particular. You might almost say I painted by smudging around the paint in quick dabs and all the smudges worked together to bring a richness to the result.” Pat Service
