12 x 12 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
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,
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,
