This is a small portrait of a new bride’s mother in law putting finishing touches on the wedding gown. The wedding took place on the groom’s family land in Mexico. I formalized most elements of the painting, and played up the contrast between the white gown and the dry wood of the shed. I finished the portrait off with a border of stylized flowers from the bride’s bouquet, doves and leaves. It made a very special wedding gift from the bride’s mother.
