Oil on Raymar Panel
A few years ago we were fortunate to be invited to a wedding in England. I loved it for so many reasons. I was able to see England from a different perspective...not just the usual tourist attractions...I was able to visit the countryside. What a treat! The wedding was magnificent and, of course, the wedding guests were just fabulous. So many hats and interesting outfits. It was fashionista's dream! I took many, many source photos! I just fell in love with this woman...she had such an aristocratic air about her...I just had to include her in my "Weddings" featured artist show at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, Virginia. She will be there surrounded by brides, grooms, bridesmaids, flower girls and groomsmen. The reception is June 8th at 6...if you are in the area!
Here she is just getting ready. I massed in the large areas of the painting and then honed in on the features and began on that hat. I DO love that hat!
I am having such fun with this Wedding series! I will be posting the paintings that will comprise the show for the next couple of weeks.
