I always say, “I just need an excuse to travel” and this time around my excuse was the stunning collection of gowns from the dear Claire Pettibone. Gathering with like-minded artist friends is a way to energize and recharge and that is just what we did in Atlanta, Georgia for this fussy and romantic art shoot. Three vignettes featuring stationery, blooms and a cake design were inspired by my three favorite gowns of fellow and kindred artist Ms. Pettibone. Her vision breathed life into every brushstroke I painted for this project.
My interpretation of Claire Pettibone Wedding Invitations is quite simple…overload on romance and hand painted texture and you’re good…No, you’re breathtaking. Floral painting galore, richly painted gilded frames and sketches of lace intricately painted in white all made an appearance in this collection.
