"But I Don't Want to" A Discussion with the bride

"But I Don't Want To"
16 x 20
Oil on Raymar Panel

This piece will be included in my "Weddings" Show at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA.  The reception is June 8th beginning at 6pm.  The show will be hung for the month of June.  

The premise of the show evokes emotions portrayed in different wedding scenes.  In this scene the bride and flower girl are having a discussion.  I love the gesture...the angles of the brides body as she bends over to meet the eye of the little flower girl looking up at her.  I love the play of light on their hair and long shadows revealing the late afternoon hour.  


  1. Wonderful interaction between them!! You did a wonderful job on this! Sweet!

  2. I can almost hear the bride speaking to the little girl...Beautifully painted, Maria!!!

  3. Great gestures! You are such a story teller with these paintings! Love it!

  4. Oh how sweet. they are chatting, you captured a lovely moment.

  5. This one is filled with emotion. I think the woman is pleading with the flower girl to do something or not do something. Very funny .... as long as it isn't my wedding LOL. Great painting Maria. You've really captured the moment.


Yayyy!!! Thanks for commenting!
