"Tender Moments" is one of my recent "Forever Bouquet Paintings". This painting was not created for a particular bride, but was created as a display sample. It is currently hanging in the elegant Anne Barge Atelier, the flagship store of Anne Barge in Atlanta, GA. Many thanks to Anne Barge Atelier for sharing my bouquet paintings with their brides.
I have been to Anne Barge Atelier on several occasions and as an artist, appreciate the artistry that goes into conceiving of the gown designs and then the quality craftsmanship that goes in to the the selection of fine materials and exquisite embellishments for the actual creation of their bridal "masterpieces". Like any great work of art, regardless of the medium, it requires a vision, commitment to excellence, quality materials and attention to detail. Below is a photo of some "inspiration boards" for gown design for the upcoming seasons displayed at the Atelier. It's fun to see a peek into their creative process.
