|"Adam and Jessie's Ketubah"|
16" x 20"
Giclee of an Oil painting
My son, Adam, is going to marry Jessie on Saturday afternoon. For this event I was asked to paint the Ketubah, the art that supports their vows, written in Hebrew and in English. She wanted champagne grapes in the colors of her bridesmaids dresses. I honored that request, and then had the text printed in bridal white on a giclee of the original. They will fill in the blanks with a pen I had to special order from Amazon. Even though I live in a metropolitan area with art supply stores in every town, I could not locate a supplier for a pen that wouldn't soak into the dark paper and fade away to nothing. I didn't think it would be a good omen for their names to fade before their first dance.
I've not been painting every day. I have however, attached a gazillion rhinestones to a letter K for the cake topper, white flip-flops for the brides tootsies to dance in, wine glasses for their toast, the centerpieces and the decorative pieces that will line the aisle, as well.
Thank you for being patient while I tend to the things a mother of the groom must do during wedding week. I will be back soon.
