Breathtaking

BREATHTAKING. Acrylic, Watercolor and Ink on silk. Breathtaking is a piece of me; it is a painting created on my wedding dress. It was created this summer, five years since our wedding date, to be a reminder of memories that have taken place since our marriage began. In this time we have endured many things. We have also been blessed by many things. Love, loss, adventure, sorrow, baby boys, finding a home, learning to seek ourselves, taking new pathways, just breathing... When I looked upon the blank canvas of my forgotten gown, I knew that was the place to record these moments. It is as treasured as a family Bible. There are words that express our covenant to God, images of our life that will forever remain uniquely our own. One of the quotes that we live by is, "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." And our life has truly measured up to this. It has been breathtaking.
