There's a grace and power to putting pen - or in this case watercolor - to paper. Sometimes we have to put our dreams down on paper to start to moving them toward reality. This commission was dreamed up for a strong young lady who's not been feeling so well and is under doctor's care. But, she has a healthy and hopeful vision for her future and knows exactly what she wants. When her mother reached out to commission me and told me her daughter's story, I was moved beyond words. I couldn't wait to put down on paper this fashionable young lady's vision for her wedding day ensemble. She has impeccably good taste and she's going to be the most beautiful blushing bride -- of this I'm sure. I hope her illustration inspires her as much as she herself is an inspiration.
