Custom wedding gift: bride, groom and dog portrait painting

Shannon and Nathan tied the knot on July 30, 2016 with two of the cutest furry companions, Harper and Lameau, by their sides. I hope more of my couples bring dogs (or anything furry) to their weddings!!! I had so much fun adding small details into their custom wedding painting.

The sweet couple married at the Wisconsin Brewing Company in Verona, Wisconsin, and enjoyed blue skies and lovely weather.

The painting was inspired by their wedding portrait, captured by SB Photography and Design.

I LOVE texture. When painting with oil paint and a palette knife, texture can appear almost abstract and close to messy. But after stepping back, the entire painting comes together.

And my favorite: the finished painting. Heirloom wedding paintings are such a creative way to celebrate a new couple, and adding personal details, such as the bouquet or family dogs, give it just the right touch.
