This is another of your very engrossing work. Is there such a person whom you know ?
thanks to you all. Hope to have the real photos up by tomarrow end.
No I dont know of such a person, its just a generic image of a bride, holding a prayer book.
Just looking again. Love that hand.

such a wonderful picture. i have really enjoyed looking at this. it has put me in my mind of the first fairytale i ever discovered and read by myself, The Rabbit Bride. the colors are lovely and strange, other worldly...i love the face, the shape of the body and the story it tells. great !

I checked this out last week and have looked at it several times since then. This work and 'bunny' strike me in the same way. They are like the images conjured up by my mind when I think of how someone struck me at a particular time in the past. In this piece, the image of the betrothed takes up nearly the entire field of view, giving a sense of her importance on her wedding day. Even in her grandeur, she is not imposing or overbearing, but rather is soothing with her confidence. She also has an athoritativeness to her that makes me (the viewer) feel as though I was very young when the wedding took place. Upon remembering this event, the minute details have softened, and some have been lost, but they have been replaced by a very vivid emotion. I think that may be why Sukant wondered if this was inspired by someone you knew.
As if you need to hear me say it... it's great.
hey dave, thanks. there is a better jpeg of it in the main crit forum, may be on page 3 or 4 by now.
