9 x 12 oil painting
by Pat Fiorello
Creating the painting felt really good- it was fun and freeing and I am really pleased with how it turned out. Might be one of my favorites ever.
My favorite thing is to create art that is going to be given as a gift to a loved one. For me, that feels like the true mission for my art. To help people celebrate love!
I lost my own mother last July and spent her last (87th) birthday with her on July 2nd while she was in hospice in a nursing home in NJ. That was the last day I spent with her before coming back home. She passed away the following week. This painting commissioned by a lovely student who I am very fond of, to her daughter whose birthday is July 3, really had me in touch with the love between mothers and daughters.
I always appreciate feedback and was especially happy to get this message back from my client:
"Thank you so much for spreading love through your paintings!"
What better purpose is there for art than spreading love?
