Built for Two

I've been away for a week, and I feel like I should apologize for being out of the studio for so long. I can't wait to get back to painting. On the bright side, the summer camp that I helped to run got a lot of positive reviews from parents and students alike.

Some friends of mine got married a couple weeks ago, and this was my wedding present to them:

And here's the painting with the frame on it. I went to the trouble of putting gold leaf on the poplar frame and then had to dull it back with an acrylic wash and some satin polyurethane. It came out very nicely, if a little late with the seven-day drying time.
