the black swan anniversary

May 17, 2013 6 Comments

have I really never posted this sketch??? I painted this two years ago, how did I forget to share it!? It's a look from the Oscar de la Renta runway archives that are always strutting through my imagination.

I thought it was kind of perfect to post seeing as it's a sultry black gown and exactly one year from today I'll be dressed in the opposite - my wedding gown. Yes, today is my negative one year anniversary! It is the black swan sister of the whitest day of my life.

How should I celebrate this occasion? I'm taking suggestions... Champagne? skydiving? yoga challenges?

I am getting married May 17, 2014 also! Once I get my dress in, I would love for you to sketch it (I’ve seen a few of your bridal portraits, and I’m in love). Congratulations!! :)

That’s awesome! We did the same for my best friend, a few of us went to the venue on her negative one year anniversary and had drinks in the swanky bar to celebrate! So exciting!
