Painting of the Month

      Camellia Love, 8 x 10 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello   

My favorite painting I created this month is called Camellia Love.
Not only because I love the flowers and the colors are fitting for the holiday season but most importantly since the flowers came from my own garden which my husband  lovingly has created and tends to for me because he knows how happy flowers make me!
Thank you Peter!

A Moment of Inspiration
In this season of giving, here are a few thoughts 
to reflect on...

 "You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.


Happy Holidays!

May you see the beauty that surrounds you each day!
Thank you for your support and interest.
