Awaken the Garden

acrylic and oil

96x144"

after painting 20,000 teeny tiny, set-in-stone triangles, i wanted to do ANYTHING more organic. 
this sunday was our first anniversary. how can one year go so fast?! 

feeling nostalgic, and missing the two sweetest flower girls in the history of weddings, i decided to paint them, in their skirts, in a meadow of tulle flowers. 

i was going to title this "awake in the garden", but if you know these girls, you know they do the waking. in fact, one morning i woke up to the green flower girl squishing my cheeks between her two tiny hands, saying, "when it's time to get up, it's time to get up!"

 i played around with sharpie oil markers on this painting.... so far i'm a fan!
