A perfect day for this beautiful couple -Jess and Jared at Newport Beach House in Newport RI. A true love story that can be traced back to their childhood. These two honored their parents and grandparents by carrying on their jewish heritage with a beautiful ceremony of prayer and blessings.
May they be blessed as they step into this new chapter of life - with love, hope and faith. And for me, I couldn't have been happier to see see my dear friends Ann and Ross give their daughter's hand in marriage. Knowing Jessie since she was about 7 years old, I felt the heart tug and the tears fill my eyes - so proud of who she has become and filled with so much joy! Mazel Tov Jess and Jared!
Artist Notes: Back in my studio I took some time analyzing the progress from the 6 hour live painting session.
Here is where I had to solve several challenges without changing the integrity of what was capture during the event.
First, adding in 7 additional figures into the painting. I decided that it would be best to add the parents and grandparents in while seated and looking over their shoulder as Jess and Jared walk down the aisle.
In order to keep the figures close and not separated in the composition I moved the two floral arrangements to either side of the canvas. This helped to balance the composition nicely.
Every step along the way I would watch over numerous times the videos I took during the ceremony. I wanted to be reminded of the way the light illuminated and highlighted the bride's dress, her veil, the florals and even the sun-kissed light on the faces and figures.
.Small details make a big difference, and that's why I like to take my time adding these in. Like the rose petals scattered around on the ground, and the baby's breath and petit florals lining either side of the aisle. The hint of the chuppah cloth blowing in the wind.
As a whole, I love how this piece came together with the organic elements of nature: water, sky, distant land and green grass contrasts with the elegance and simplicity of the black and white wedding attire and florals.
