Heaven Scent

Heaven Scent
16 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello


Aside from the apparent visual beauty of these O'Hara roses, a distinctive feature is their wonderful fragrance. I enjoyed having the scent in my studio while painting "Heaven Scent".

12 x 12 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

This is my latest bridal bouquet painting just shipped off to a recent bride in New York. The parents of the groom gave one of my gift certificates to the couple for an engagement gift.

 As soon as the photo's were in I started on this painting. It provided some challenges not only that it was an all white bouquet (as many of them are) but the sweet peas are very delicate and almost paper thin, unlike some of the more typical wedding flowers like roses, hydrangeas and peonies which have a more solid form.

The broach on the handle was of special significance in that it was a wedding knot broach that belonged to the bride's late grandmother, so I gave it a little more detail.

Below is the reference photo from the wedding.

Here's what the bride had to say, 

"Hi Pat,

Confirming I received my painting last night and I absolutely love it! I cannot wait to get it framed and hang it on my wall. I really think it came out beautifully and it is such a special reminder of our wedding day. I cannot thank you enough. I will most definitely be referring your work to my engaged friends!

Thank you so much,
