First Dance Painting

First Dance in New Jersey, 24x24", painted by Patricia Bennett
A romantic first dance.  Congratulations to the lovely couple.

I was hired by a good friend of the Groom's father to paint this as a present to the couple.

Me and my client met at Starbucks and perused the thousand photos on the photographer's website.  We decided to use a design based on Live Artist Katherine Gressel's Paintings: the first dance centered, their cake on the left, and family members depicted behind them.

Using the thousand photos as reference and with the client's guidance, I painted in the parents of the bride and groom, their respective siblings, and a few bridesmaids and groomsmen.  The florals on the right are from the Chuppah, I thought that was a nice touch.  And the Groom had to have checkered socks.

This took a few weeks to complete.  The couple can use the image for cards if they wish, or even a coffee mug.
