Dark Wedding


Yolaine’s lace dress is one of the most interesting and beautiful dresses I’ve seen.  I flew to Montreal specially for her wedding to Olivier.  I thought I’d be alone wearing black at a wedding, but it turned out quite the opposite occurred.  The majority of us wore black, and that just made the bride in white pop like champagne.

Following the curves and web of the lace with a wet white brush was delicious work.  In fact, I painted this photo twice… once on cardboard which I gave to Yo and Oli, and again on wood when I moved back to Victoria.
