This piece was also painted for my best friend, Andrea. She has shown me on numerous occasions the lovely wedding dress paintings that artists tout on Etsy – yes, I can take a hint! I painted this as a surprise birthday gift for her and gave it to her when I visited her in Knoxville a few weeks ago. This was pretty fun for me to paint since I was with Andrea when she picked out this dress, when she went for fittings, as well as on her big day. She was so surprised to open this as a gift!
