Flowers and Watering Can - acrylic floral still life painting on slate by Pennsylvania Contemporary Artist Pat Koscienski

Flowers and Watering Can
12" x 7"
Acrylic on slate

This was a first for me...painting on slate.  It was a commission for a friend who hangs this piece outside of her house beneath her name.  The photo shows the slate laying on my studio carpet.  My only concern was how the acrylic paint was going to hold up in cold weather.  I did apply UV varnish to give it protection against fading, however, I would sure hate to see the paint craze when those temperatures drop.  If you have any questions, contact PAT.  If you would like to see more of my paintings, both representational and abstract, please visit my website at:

I think it is a delightful piece and I love how the slate works as a substrate. Hopefully it will hold up for years!

Thanks, Sherry. It was fun painting on that surface also; paint stayed in some of those crevices, making for some areas of unexpected emphasis.
