Vincenzo and Philomena Fiore


I was honored to be asked to paint a portrait of my husband's great grandparents for the cover of an upcoming Fiore "memories and recipes" book for a family reunion. The reference photo was taken in the early 1900s and it was challenging to guess colors while trying to capture a likeness. This was a fun project and I hope I was able to get a decent enough likeness. If they could see this, would they recognize themselves or wonder "who are these people?"
