Tomorrow is the drop off date for all art entries for the fair. This weekend has been a last minute push to get everything done. I recently finished The Bride. The background was a really tough issue to deal with. My original idea was to have pink 3-D-ish flowers fill the background, but after a few hours of making petals I decided the idea didn't work like I had been hoping. That's when I decided to sketch out a new idea, which was tree branches, and flowers. I think it works better this way, and I like the pops of colors the leaves and the little bird add. Hope you all enjoy!
