10″ × 20″ Acrylic on stretched canvas.

This is the first painting for the triptych I created for an art commission that my client is giving as a wedding present to friends. My client wanted my art work to be derived from one of the bridal couple’s very favorite wedding photos.

The Special Wedding Photo

Look closely at the top left hand corner of the special wedding photo and you’ll see the distinct vine design and water damaged trellis I included in the painting.

*I knew that I didn’t want to traditionally interpret the photo by painting their portrait. For this unique couple I felt that would be too predictable. I really wanted to create something for this newly married couple that they could have for years; that could grow with them as their tastes and styles evolved. By creating a triptych, this couple is receiving three works of art that can be displayed separately or together, two or three at a time! I also knew that this young couple didn’t have any original artwork, so I really wanted to stretch my clients money and help this couple start their first fine art collection together off properly.
I also found it secretly romantic and special that all three of the paintings I created highlight specific details from the photo that only the bridal couple would recognize.

The extremely enjoyable part of this commission was deciding on the small details from their very special photo to create three distinct works of art that could stand alone and also flow together with harmony.

Here’s a close up of the inspiration for “Wisteria Vines”…*

The wisteria was something that I really wanted to include, purple was one of the colors seen in the wedding photos and a very healing color. Wisteria is romantic and an element in the bridal couple’s favorite photo.

Enjoy!
