Allie and Tom Update | Peonies in July

Allie and Tom's wedding went off without a hitch on Saturday...despite the unusually cold July weather.  Take a look at the blushing bride and her parents:

After finishing my last painting and having a mini break, I was awfully anxious to start my next painting.  Over the weekend I put some compositions together, but had to wait to return to Chicago before any paint could hit a canvas.  So yesterday, I finalized a composition and got to work!

Check out the composition:

So beautiful, right!?  I'm still beaming that the lace from Allie's mom's wedding dress fit perfectly into this frame.

Can't wait to start painting tomorrow!

P.S.  Does my background look a little green to you?  Don't adjust your screens, but definitely check back for my reasoning behind this color switch up!


  1. Curious to hear your method!!! So glad you got to be a guest at this one and add something special after the fact! Excited to see how this one turns out.

  2. I love this composition!! Can't wait see it finished!!
