In my last blog post, I talked about how if I don’t have a deadline, I let things linger and don’t prioritize them. Luckily, the opposite is also true and this painting is the perfect example of how I buckle down under pressure and get things done! I only had about 2 weeks to finish this painting (the client gave me about 1 months notice, but I was away on vacation for 2 of those weeks) and think it came out pretty great.
This particular one was for a lady who wanted a gift for her groom-to-be on their wedding day. Isn’t that cute? I didn’t know that was a thing, but now that I do, I’m really touched that she trusted me with that. She pointed out 3 paintings of mine that she liked, and said “combine these into something amazing but include a bridge with Clark and I on it – the location where he proposed.” This was the montage of photos I got which show the cute couple and the bridge:
Initially, I was leaning towards a colour scheme similar to After Midnight, but on three separate canvases:
Then at about this point, I decided to go for more of a Leonid Afremov inspired colour scheme:
And in 2 weeks flat, the painting was done, and delivered to the client literally on the eve of her wedding, so that she could give it to her groom-to-be the following morning. Below are some photos the couple sent me of the painting once they hung it up.
I’d like to wish them all the best in their new lives together.
Did you know bride/groom wedding gifts were a thing? What did you get your bride/groom ? Leave a comment below, I’m super curious!
