This August I created a painting for Jordan & Marissa in celebration of their wedding. I love creating paintings with particular people in mind as I think of them throughout the painting process and hope that they can feel this when they look at the painting. The bright pink in the base of this landscape reminded me of Marissa’s warmth and vibrancy. The happy couple have adventured in beautiful oceanfront places like Tofino and Australia. This painting hopes to capture the spirit of all of the places that have inspired them, reminding them of their adventures and journeys together both past and future. Best wishes M&J!!! Woot! Woot!
