"My Treasure"

There is something quite magical about painting until two in the morning, then you suddenly wake up the next day and wonder if it was all a dream. 

Thankfully, it was not!

 I finally finished my wedding gift just in time for the event. 

This piece features newlyweds Nazha, as the Hindu Princess Bride,
 and Anton, her Russian Prince.

The amount of detail on the Bride's saree was very fun to paint. I will definitely be making more Hindu Bride pieces in the future. 

Rubies, Emeralds, Gold and Pearls.
Oh, and a Prince, too.

What more could a bride ask for?


After finishing Nazha's dress, I was ready to tackle something a bit less complicated.

Yet, for all it's simplicity, the prince looks very regal in silk, wolf fur and pearls!

Congratulations to the Bride and Groom!
