Since the time I was very little, I have been fascinated by candles. On Shabbat, I would stare at the candles, totally mesmerized. The reason why is because I have always seen the shapes of people dancing in the flames. Thus, it occurred to me to make a painting in honor of my friends who are getting married: Daughter of God & The Man With The Colored Coat and Rocket Man & The Flower Princess.
Also, at least according to the tradition in my house, we light a candle for each person (so in my house, we light six candles.) For myself, here in Washington Heights, I light one. When my mother got married, she lit two. Thus, the connection between the actual people and the Shabbat candles, is, in my mind, very much there.
The reason I painted it tonight was because I was listening to Candleburn by Dishwalla, one of my favorite songs, and I remembered that I had wanted to do so. (It's one of the most beautiful songs you'll ever hear.)
So here tis (you should enlarge it to see it better.)
Anyway, Rocket Man lives far away, but Daughter of God, I thought perhaps I might give it to you (assuming you wanted it). Obviously, I don't know if this is your style of painting or if you like the concept, but if it is, I'd love for it to be an additional wedding present for you. If not, no worries (I am very particular about artwork so I totally understand if you are as well). And of course, I'm just an amateur. Anyway, mazal tov, sweetness, either way. I love you lots.
Random Update: Daughter of God loves my picture, so I shall give it to her and have helped make the kallah happy before her wedding day. *smile* And now I am happy, too.
