I am so honored that Mary chose me to paint a keepsake portrait of her wedding dress. Mary was married in 1987. Isn’t she lovely! Her mother Fountaine, seen in the photo with her daughter on her wedding day, made her dress. Mary lost her mother in a tornado in recent years, but her wedding dress was retrieved. Mary invited me to be a part of her wedding story when she commissioned a wedding dress portrait as a “memorial to my mother”. As you can see from the photos, the dress still sparkles and Fountaine’s talent lives on and will be cherished and celebrated by generations to come!
Mary, I am so grateful you invited me to be a part of honoring your mother in this special way! -Kristina
