Camellia Love

Camellia Love
 8 x 10 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Just finished this last night. I call it  "Camellia Love" since it was inspired by Camellias from my garden which I arranged into a table top still life.

The Camellia part is obvious, but the Love may not be.

I titled it Camellia Love because the flowers are from my garden.
I don't have much of a green thumb, but my husband Peter has been working for many years to continually upgrade our garden with new and different plants and flowers. He aways reminds me he is doing all this work for me- because he knows how happy the flowers make me- it's one of his expressions of love.

 So I just wanted to paint some of the lovely flowers that he tended to with love
(and lots of sweat equity), to let him know how much I love and appreciate him and all that he does for me (I hope you're reading honey!).


  1. What a lovely story and lovely husband. Plus your painting is a winner.
