Wedding Car, matted print
The bright colors, deep shadows, peacefulness, and nostalgic atmosphere of this piece make it shine. Part of my "Looking Back" series of paintings "Wedding Car" is based on a family photo. The original image is labelled "Wedding Saturday." It is the car my grandmother took to her wedding in 1947. I love the way the car looks, parked under apple trees and dappled with sunshine. Such a simple image, but laden with meaning about driving towards one's destiny.
Bright and crisp 9.25"x13.5" print on Fuji Pearl paper for striking metallic sheen and depth. Matted with a soft grey, archival bevel cut mat to fit any standard 16x20" frame.
