Erin & Nic - Nov. 19, 2009
Erin wanted to preserve her wedding flowers on three 8x8 paintings for her and Nic and then give a fourth to her mother as a keepsake of their wedding.
Her wedding flowers were red roses, purple carnations, red gerberas and orange lilies.
The bride wanted the focal flowers to be the red roses. Since red roses dry to a deep burgundy I had to hand paint each petal and dry them before adding them to the canvas.
Here is a edge view of each canvas showing some of the flower petals used on the front surface of the paintings.
