I began this portrait painting (below) earlier this year in preparation for our wedding. It was a piece that was planned to be behind us at our reception, but because of circumstances, busyness, etc., it was unfortunately not completed in time. But, on the bright side, this portrait oil painting does hang in our living-room right now.






I spent countless hours on this artwork, trying to capture my wife's beauty onto the canvas, since she is the focus of the composition, emphasizing details like her beautiful green eyes, and flowing hair.
