This painting was done from a photo that a dear friend took at our wedding. The two girls with umbrellas are Victoria and Nicola Lord. I worked with their mom and dad on the campsite where we got married.
I loved the picture from the start and thought it would make a great painting. The background was a new experiment for me, as I used a sponge on the white canvas instead of a brush. I fell in love with this effect and might use it more in future painting.
I gave this painting as a thank you to their parents.
