ORIGINAL Acrylic on 9x12” canvas. My first painting of 2015. An abstract, monochromatic modern bride. Highly textured—painted with palette knife instead of brushes. White gallery wrapped canvas edge. Wired and ready to hang.
“With so many friends’ weddings this past year, brides have been on my mind a lot. The very word ‘bride’ is amazing. A word which applies to only a few moments of a girl’s life, moments she’s dreamed of and planned for all her days, while on her way to being called, ‘my wife.’ I can’t decide whether this painting is just before or just after she says, ‘I do.’ You decide.” —Chris Rice
