I spent most of yesterday working on the couple and adding in some color to the background. I like the contrast I am able to get by painting the background a dark color and overlaying the lighter colors. My next step is to paint in the letters and add some detail to the bridge.

I adore the piece I am working on right now. It is working out exactly as I hoped it would, which, after the struggles I had with the last one, is a welcome change. I decided to do another vintage Greenville travel image, combining the modern bridge with vintage people and text. Before I started this one I had the image in my head of a couple pointing off into the distance with the suspension bridge in the background. I get a bit nervous when I like paintings this much this soon in the process, but the more I work on this one, the more it fits what I wanted. Can't wait to show you the work I did on it today!

This was a piece that did NOT come together easily. It was pretty much a struggle from start to finish. But I also think it is exactly those struggles that make me like it that much more now. If we never encounter obstacles in our path, we will never grow stronger, am I right?
Katrina and Kyle are friends of my sister, and they were married this past weekend. Congrats guys, and enjoy!
