Congratulations Marcia & Harry!


You may remember my miniature study, "Tulip Garden at Giverny."  This painting was purchased by my sister, Peggy, as a wedding gift for Mom & Harry.  Last year when Mom & Peggy travelled to France with me, they gave me a special gift of a ticket to see Giverny Gardens and take photos, so this was a great idea come full circle.  Thanks for thinking of it, Peggy!




"Tulip Garden at Giverny," 1 1/4" x 3 1/4" egg tempera on Kelmscott vellum

During their honeymoon visit to NYC, I had lunch with Mom & Harry at Asiate on the 35th floor of NYC's Mandarin Oriental Hotel

Here is the first photo I have of the happy couple, Mom & her new husband Harry

L to R:  my sister Peggy and 2 of her 4 sons, David & Daniel, with Harry.   Since my brother is a qualified justice of the peace, he performed the ceremony.

Congratulations to your mom and Harry!!
Wow! Your mom looks young for her age. I want to be like that when I am 83. It's really great to see their photo. Are you going to paint them??

Thanks Leslie, and thanks to everyone for your warm wishes. In answer to Akiko's question, it's potential material, but right now I have five paintings in progress, so we'll see.
