20 x 24 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
This painting is a recent commission for a client. It's the home of his brother in Naples, Italy. He had seen my paintings of Italy and my book "Bella Italia, Italy Through the Eyes of an Artist" and knew I loved Italy and had experience in painting Italian scenes. So we got some photos and got started.

When I start to work on a commission with a new client, I will schedule a design session, in person if possible or over the phone if long distance, where I can understand their intentions, what they want, why it is important, where they plan to hang it, the color palette, size, medium, framing plans (do they want gallery wrap or not?), the mood or feeling and other aspects that will be input to the creation of the painting.
For many people, it's their first time commissioning something special, so I share an outline of "what to expect when you commission a painting". There are several review points along the way to check in on the direction before the final approval.
I've painted commissions for many, many people for all sorts of occasions. Sometimes it's for a special holiday (like painting a wedding location for Valentine's Day gift), a special event (anniversary or birthday) a memory ( e.g. a painting of a former family home) or just to have an ideal piece to enhance your living space. You can have exactly what you want.
I have more information on my website about commissions in general and specifically bridal bouquet paintings which are a favorite of mine to do, knowing that they will be a cherished keepsake of one of the most important days in someones life.
Just contact me to get started on something that will be especially meaningful to you or to someone you love.
