Courtney & Jason's Painting

Courtney and Jason were married on June 19th, 2009. Her painting was one I worked a long time on before I thought it was just right! There was a precarious balance between the pink of the gerbera daisies in the center and bringing that pink in elsewhere in the painting.

The flowers from her bouquet and a bridesmaid bouquet (to bring in more color) included the gerbera daisies, hydrangea, and roses.

This painting is 18x24 inches. One of my favorite elements when using roses is searching for the odd-shaped petals. To the right here, you can see two hearts that I found in the center of a rose!
