Join me as I share the progression of Wedding Vows below.
Read about the objects and symbolism for Wedding Vows in this post.
Wedding Vows seemed to take forever to paint as higher priorities, trips, and illness kept me at a crawling pace toward the finish line. This is always very difficult for me. I start to feel like the painting isn’t one cohesive unit, but is instead a disjointed puzzle with pieces that don’t quite fit together. Sometimes when a week or two has passed, I find that I even see the colors differently which can be very evident in my normal white cloth which everything is sitting on. One week I’ll see the shadows cooler than the next week.
Many flowers, limes, lemons and pears were sacrificed in the studio. So, I struggled. But in the end, it worked well and it’s now hanging in West End Gallery, just waiting for her new home.
