Here comes the bride! Five great ideas to celebrate weddings

Custom Bridal bouquet paintings
by Miriam Schulman 


Currently, I am working on building up my portfolio with samples of watercolor paintings of bridal bouquets. To get started, I posted a request on my facebook page for fans and friends to send in their wedding flower pictures for free art. For each photo I made three paintings in three different sizes. This is important because the larger the painting, the more detail there is so I wanted to give customer an idea of what they can expect. The three sizes I chose to offer were ACEO ( which is a playing card sized collectible artwork), 4x6" and 8x10" The "bride" who donated their photo to me each got the 4x6" painting for free which will be sent to them with 8x10" matting. By the way, as of this post I still can do two more free paintings of bouquets and I also will start asking for pictures of wedding dresses! You can either "tag" SchulmanArt on your facebook page or email the digital photo to SchulmanArt@yahoo.com
