Wedding Dress Realigned


Acrylic Painting
by Pamela Underwood

Acrylic on velour
48.5″H, 35.5″W

This painting is a tribute to the institution of marriage, in a changing world. I have been married for over forty years, to the same person. Weve both changed, and with each change, we have managed to realign with one another in order to stay. Nothing is more satisfying than the gift of a seasoned passion, gained only by realigning with the growth and change of one another.
