"In Full Bloom" Charleston Show Opening

Pat Fiorello at Spencer Gallery opening
 in Charleston, SC  4/6/12

I was in Charleston last week. Delivered 15 new paintings for the opening of my show " In Full Bloom"  a series of elegant florals.  Here are a couple of photo's from the show.

While in Charleston, I was able to go on one of their Spring walking tours of private gardens and really enjoyed that.  They have been running the Festival of Houses & Gardens, which benefits the Historic Charleston Society,  for 65 years.   This year's program ran for a full month and included daily events  which typically include 8-12 homes or gardens. They have 15 different programs over the course of the month. It's amazing job to coordinate all that, but they do a great job and it is well worth going if you ever have the chance. Very inspiring to see what people do with relatively small garden spaces to make them seem lush, romantic and inviting. Came back inspired to make some changes in my own backyard garden.
