Labor Day 2016. Friends, painting is not labor. The fun and enjoyment derived from the hours I have in my studio can’t be measured in time or money. Truly, we all know the phrase ‘starving artist’ – well…yes. But I am full in many other ways – and one of those blessings is being able to share my work with you. Let me know what you think of this new style I am working on…it is from my Foxy Lady line.
Today’s post is a collage using Anne Bradstreet’s poem “To My Dear And Loving Husband”. I tore it from a poetry book that I had given to my own husband on our first anniversary. Please note my hand written note to him. Poor guy, he has been getting sappy stuff like this every year since! It’s called romance – and he loves it! Keeping the romance in a marriage is very good for the spirit, doesn’t have to cost a lot, creates staying power, and is what memories are made of. Collage: Watercolor, colored pencil, a real rhinestone ring, a page torn from ‘A Little Treasury of Love Poems’ by Cary Wilkins Can you spot the design error I made? Thanks for sharing the romantic, wedding month of June with Sweeney Art Center. Next month is July: Americana
I love June weddings, although I realize many women today are planning their weddings to be held in months other than June. Some months are better for honeymoon travel discounts, while other months coincide more closely with vacations or family reunions dates. In whatever month a young woman marries; when she walks down the aisle she is most certainly going to be a “beautiful bride”. Please enjoy my depiction of a young, beautiful bride as we celebrate June – the month of weddings and everlasting marriage. Watercolor with colored pencil
