Keeping the Faith

Keeping the Faith
16 x 20 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello


 I recently took a flower arranging workshop at Faith Flowers Studio in Atlanta. Laura Iarocci is the owner and offers classes, in addition to the exceptional floral design services she and her team provide for weddings and other special occasions.

The focus of this particular class was using grocery store flowers to make a beautiful arrangement at home. Laura shared her "recipe" for this arrangement and then the students (including me) were given a bucket of these flowers- roses, hydrangea, spay roses, carnations along with greenery like pittosporum and seeded eucalyptus to create an arrangement of our own. Below are some photo's of the arrangement I made during class,  the completed arrangement after class on the bench and then set up as inspiration for the still life shown above.
