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.

Judge's Comment: "This painting caught my eye from the very start. It held together even in the thumbnail stage – which is always the sign of good composition. I love the point of view of looking down on the dress and the reflection in the mirror. And the colors used in the dress keep it vibrant and exciting even though it is a solid white dress. This is a masterful skill to paint white and keep it from being boring. Well done, Spencer! Oh, and I love that the title is a scripture reference!"
