The Wedding Dress
20x16 inches / oil on canvas
This commissioned painting of a gorgeous wedding dress was a very special gift from mother to daughter on her wedding day. It was delightful to paint these billowy layers like feathers on a swan. If you have a wedding dress, wedding bouquet, christening gown or hat, which you'd like as an oil painting for posterity, please click the image below.

That is so beautiful. I have such issues with painting whites, but you are a true artist, capturing depth, texture and form. Kudos! Carolina E.


Thank you SO much, Carolina, for your lovely comments. White is such an intriguing color which does take quite awhile to master...I'm still working on it!

Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where others see nothing.
