Wedding on Erie

This painting shows a newlywed couple and captures a pivotal moment on their special day. They are heading towards their reception, which took place on lake Erie seen in the background. This happened in the early spring so the trees haven't flowered and there are no leaves yet. The absence of leaves signifies the fresh beginnings of their journey together, symbolizing the purity and untapped potential of their union.

I made this painting in black and white, but I decided to put this colored tattoo on her back, because I thought it was interesting to have a little color detail. It adds a touch of modernity and intrigue to the otherwise grayscale canvas. This singular burst of color symbolizes the vibrant individuality of the bride and how love unites unique personalities coming together in harmony.
