These paintings were such a joy to do because of the story behind the wedding flowers of Mandy and Aaron.
Aaron wrote to me in July of 2009 telling me that the company that was to preserve his wife's wedding flowers closed, kept their money, but most importantly never returned her bouquet. I collected the same flowers that were in her bouquet, dry pressed them and turned them into a 16x20 painting.
Aaron wanted to surprise Mandy with a 8x8 canvas with a photo of Mandy and her grandfather.
He also asked if I could incorporate the bubbles that were captured in the photos from their wedding, which I have done in both paintings.
