Oil on Canvas
This is the last of the nine pieces in my featured artist show at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, Virginia. The show is titled "Weddings and Destinations." I share the billing with Kathy Strauss's fabulous destinations photography that compliment my weddings paintings perfectly.
Here the bride is getting ready...helped out by a close relative with the final touches of her preparation for what will be one of the most important days of her life.
I remember all the preparation for my own wedding. It was a relatively small affair by today's standards but we arranged for photography, food, cake, church etc...all the bases were covered. We even got ahold of an antique car to ride to the church...The one thing we forgot to make arrangements for is for my mom to get to the church!!! In all the preparation I boarded the car with my maid of honor and my dad...my mom was left at home with the photographer!!! She had to hitch a ride with him or she would have missed the whole thing!!! So funny now...not so funny then!
This series and show has been a wonderful experience for me. I love painting series and look forward to starting my next project.
