Gather 'Round

Gather 'Round
12 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
$750

 


Been busy with holiday and year end activities this month so I haven't been posting to the blog as much, but I have been painting with a focus on still life this month. Gather 'Round above is the latest of these paintings.  Some of the others completed this month are below. All are available on my Daily Paintworks gallery.


 One of my intentions for 2019 is to do more still life paintings incorporating props I've purchased over the years for still life set ups but have yet to paint.  I have a whole book case filled with props of all sizes, colors and surfaces and  many of them have yet to make their painting debut. So stay tuned for some new inspiration in the coming year.


Thank you for following along on my blog. I appreciate your interest in my artwork.

Best wishes for a very happy holiday season and may 2019 be your best year yet!

Garden Light

Garden Light
12 x 16 Oil Painting

I had observed these beautiful roses in what looks like a parking lot.  I liked the shapes and pattern of light and shadow, but decided to use some "artistic license" to transform the parking lot into a garden scene.



 Here are some of the steps getting started on "Garden Light".

Keeping the Faith



Keeping the Faith
16 x 20 Oil Painting

$1600

 

 I recently took a flower arranging workshop at Faith Flowers Studio in Atlanta. Laura Iarocci is the owner and offers classes, in addition to the exceptional floral design services she and her team provide for weddings and other special occasions.

The focus of this particular class was using grocery store flowers to make a beautiful arrangement at home. Laura shared her "recipe" for this arrangement and then the students (including me) were given a bucket of these flowers- roses, hydrangea, spay roses, carnations along with greenery like pittosporum and seeded eucalyptus to create an arrangement of our own. Below are some photo's of the arrangement I made during class,  the completed arrangement after class on the bench and then set up as inspiration for the still life shown above.
