My daughter is engaged!

Category: Uncategorized

Yesterday morning my daughter called to tell us she is engaged- officially, with a diamond ring even! We are thrilled! This has been a while in coming, as she and her sweetie have been together for about three years.
The painting swelled right up out of my heart an hour or two after she called. I did it quickly on a scrap of loose primed canvas. You can see the charcoal marks that will be the edge of the 6×8″ canvas once it is stretched, but I share it here with the rough edges that sort of add to the euphoria. I wanted to paint her radiantly happy, and even though she may not choose to wear a white veil, it was my vision of her as a beautiful bride.

    Congratulations! I hope she’ll keep us posted.
    I like the daily painting. That’s quite a discipline, especially with the blog to keep you honest. The paintings are vibrant, and now they’re already forming a diary of your life! Keep it up – love, Andrew
