love is in the air...
.......but for who?
Merice and I were enjoying an evening stroll on Sewerby Cliffs near where we are fortunate to live. Below us a strange scene was being enacted. A young couple were obviously having their wedding photographs taken on the beach. There was a small crowd of people in attendance including the photographer and he had the couple strike various poses as the tide was rolling in. The scene was so irresistibly romantic that I knew I'd have to paint it. I finished the painting and we decided to find out who the couple were. So we used the power of the press to help us....and they did! The happy couple turned up at my gallery. They loved the painting and bought some prints of it for their family and friends to keep. We decided to present the original painting to them as a wedding gift. Recently we met up with them again. They now have a family and it was very nice to see them so happy together.
