    There is a flow of wedding gowns and prom dresses in and out of our home waiting for my wife to make alterations. While this dress was on the form my attention was drawn to the train fanned out behind it. After taking multiple photos from different angles I settled on this view with the back of the dress reflecting in the full length mirror. I felt it completed the story. I wrestled with an appropriate title. Something suggesting anticipation. I felt the scripture Revelation 21:2 "as a bride adorned for her husband" was the perfect fit.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
