This piece was inspired by the March Challenge in The Latest Trends in Mixed Media Art group. The theme for March was "Mail Order Bride."
I knew I wanted a bridal couple and perhaps an image of a woman writing or reading a letter. When I found the two images (all are from Joanna Banana) of the musing man and the musing woman, I knew I could make a composition using those. The background and floral elements are from Cottage Arts. I played around with the type of light on each image using Photoshop CS3.
I liked the saying on the background, "Love for all Time". I am sure many of the mail order brides hoped to find true love, not just safety and security through this type of marriage.
