The following two paintings are part of a diptych, which is a series of two paintings that are intended to be displayed together.
This is one of two paintings in a series depicting the wedding of a young, hard-working couple. The groom and I worked diligently, sharing the vision and plans leading up to the creation of these gifts for his bride. Working the stained glass vividly against the purity of the ivory marble tones was an exciting challenge.
This is the second of a diptych (two parts to a series) of paintings depicting this couple being wed in this pristine church. I was asked to combine elements from a series of photographs, so in this case, I added the form of the organ to draw the viewers eye along the line of attendees to the altar where the bride and groom are framed.
