|Carnations in Red|
8 x 10 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
Haven't been posting as much lately because I'm working on several holiday commissions that are going to be gifts so don't want to spoil the surprise so I will wait to share them till after the recipients have gotten them.
In the meantime I did have a chance to buy some carnations and work on this painting "Carnations in Red".
Also wanted to send a big THANK YOU! to Cornelia Powell for featuring my bridal bouquet commissions in her blog "Letters to a Bride" on November 11.
Cornelia is a long time friend and wedding expert, working with brides in many capacities over 30 years to ensure that their special day is filled with beauty, tradition and meaning.
In her new Amazon best seller book, The Bride's Ritual Guide: Look Inside to Find Yourself, Cornelia takes the old bridal rhyme, “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence for her shoe,” and turns it into a magical reverie for the modern bride. Called a “wedding folklorist,” she shares ways to bring more ease, pleasure and reassurance into a woman's life not only as a bride, but through all her rites-of-passage.
