Wedding



I'm back after a very busy, exhausting, and ultimately fun month. When you only go home to visit once in a year, there are a lot of things to do and people to see in a very short amount of time!I was actually only gone for two weeks, but I needed another two weeks to recover after the trip. Plus I have been sick for the last week, so hopefully I may be excused for my lack of posts...

I actually have some other projects a-brewin' that would better suit this week's Illustration Friday topic of "Wedding" but none of them are finished....or have even been started for that matter. If I'm feeling especially ambitious, I might try to get one done and posted before Friday. I might.

This is actually a piece that I was hired to do as a birthday present. The recipient is from Virginia (but living in California) and misses the turning of the leaves that you don't see as much here as on the East Coast. I can relate to that - fall is beautiful in Pennsylvania. I thought it would be appropriate for the "Wedding" topic because of the couple in the image. That, as well as the fact that I am going home in a few weeks for an autumn-themed wedding. The oranges in this painting are the colors for that wedding, so it all fits....sort of. Anyhow, enjoy!

Have a great Monday!

Stunning.

I had lived down in Texas for three years and didn't realize until then how breathtaking autumn trees are. I'm happy to be back in the midwest now where autumn exists.

Great Illustration. I checked out the rest of your blog am I very impressed. I like that your work is lyrical and cartoon-like, but also has painterly quality to it.
Good stuff.
