Valentine's Day Commission

Canadian Romance
22 x 28 Oil Painting
 by Pat Fiorello

I just completed a very special commission project. A client of mine wanted to surprise his wife for Valentine's Day with a painting of a garden in Canada near where they got married and where they recently made a return visit for their 10th anniversary. He supplied some photo's from the recent trip and had a wonderful image of a beautiful area. The challenge was transforming the vertical reference photo into the horizontal format he wanted for the room he had in mind. I ended up taking some artistic license and enlarging , exaggerating things as well as lifting a portion of a building and trees from other photos to create a horizontal design. I love to do commissions, especially when I know the painting will be a very thoughtful and meaningful gift for  someone special.

Here was the original reference photo I had to work with.
