Wedding Board

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted — sorry, I’ve been busy painting chickens. However, I’ve gotten final approval on a painting I did a while back for our friends who are getting married soon. They liked the wedding picture I did of John and Kaori a while back, so I did the wedding board for their upcoming wedding. (Do we have wedding boards in the US? I don’t think so… It’s basically a picture of the couple displayed outside the reception hall. Unfortunately they often look really cheesey, like boardwalk caricatures.) Anyway, here it is:

The sad thing is that Hitomi and I saw some people doing *really* awful wedding boards online for upwards of $200 a pop… I guess you only have to live here to see how lucrative a business weddings are in Japan. After all, even in our corner-of-nowhere neighborhood, there are more than 3 enormous, gaudy wedding chapels, and more being constructed it seems every month.
