I've just completed this painting "Portrait of a Marriage." It continues my "marriage" series, which celebrates the privilege and joy and humor and wonder that are part of being married. Marriage is for me a joy and a privilege and I love illustrating some of the aspects of this state of being. This painting was inspired by two incredible women -- they are every bit as vibrant, colorful and filled with joie de vivre -- as the painting. The "brides" are from their own wedding cake -- and the rest was my invention. It was SUCH a great pleasure creating this painting (and my husband LOVED eating the cake afterwards!).
