Wedding Day

Shawna Preston's avatar Shawna Preston

This year I've decided to showcase what I do throughout the year. As a stay at home mom of two young children, time for my artwork if pretty limited. When I do get a chance to work, I love to create custom works for people. I especially enjoy creating custom work to help people celebrate their wedding day. I hand paint glassware to match their wedding colors and theme, often including names and dates to make them one of a kind and special to them. I also love drawing and painting portraits. My entry this year includes both my glassware and my portrait work. I've hand painted a set of glasses with an elegant fall theme. I've also created an acrylic painting on wood of my husband and I on our wedding day. I added a slightly unique twist to my painting by creating my bouquet and my husband's boutonniere out of real pressed flowers. I've also added a border of real pressed leaves to give the painting some nice color and texture, and to emphasize our fall wedding theme.
