I saw the potential of this painting as I was painting ‘Secrets’ and decided to develop that area of the painting into a separate picture. Here is a photo of it as it appeared in ‘Secrets.’
I really liked this area of the work and saw that it had potential to develop into something in it’s own right. In fact I would go so far as to say that it demanded to be painted and didn’t give me any peace until I relented and began it! In ‘Secrets’ this area was only quite small in size. In the new work, which I called ‘The Wedding’ the painting measures 24″x18″, over three times the size of it’s original. There is something about this work that I really like. I find that sometimes a painting just reaches inside of me and settles and ‘The Wedding’ is one such painting.
Here is a picture of it as the completed new work.
Look For Next Thursday’s Post: Lady In a Hat – a continuation of the ‘Secrets’ series.
