How we will collaborate
Decide on the Scene
What memory do you want to capture from your wedding? The 'reveal'? The first dance? Cutting the cake? Walking in as Mr. & Mrs.? We will have a phone consultation to make sure your decision is understood. I arrive 2-3 hours early to begin painting the scene.
Watch Me Work
People love watching the painting come to life and I offer light entertainment for your guests. I enjoy conversation, as they catch glimpses of the painting taking shape.
Refine the Details
Live painting completed on-site and on the day of the wedding. Some detail in the Bride & Groom, other guests in impressionistic and painterly style. Heightened details will be added when I take it back to my studio as more definition is included in the Wedding Couple's posture, emotions, and features.
B & G Petoskey Beach, 9"x12", watercolor
A painting takes on a life of its own, capturing the essence of an event and people in a way that a camera lens cannot. Enjoy your painting for years to come, painted on archival canvas and painted with oils.
