My Painted Gallery Wall

This year my husband and I celebrated 10 years of marriage.
These ten years in many regards have just flown by, but there has been so much growth and changes that we've gone through together. When I think back to our early days, as newly weds, the time seems like forever ago.  
Isn't that life?

Last year when we purchased our home, we moved into a new master bedroom with lots of huge walls and blank spaces.  I was excited to use this space for a personalized gallery wall that I painted for my love.

This painting is definitely my favorite.  
This is the painting of the Salt Lake Temple where my husband and I were married for time and all eternity.

I painted it in oils and it took me about two months to complete.
Here's some iPad photos from my progress.

Here's some of the details.

I absolutely love the Salt Lake Temple, besides being married there, we used to live about five minutes away and visited there often.  It is beautiful and so special to us!

This is my second favorite painting. 
 I completed this painting in water color.  It is a minimalist painting of the beach.  For our honeymoon we went to San Diego, so it reminds us of that time spent there. 
 Plus the beach has always been a favorite place (California girl, you know). 
 The parts in the painting that look brown-ish are actually gold and shimmer in the sun.  It's a little harder to photograph.

This is my simplest, Love YOU painting.  It was done with acrylic paint, with the heart and You painted in my shimmery gold.  It was done on a small wrapped canvas.

This was a fun painting.  It is loosely based off this piece of art.  
I painted my wrapped canvas first all in this mixture I made that was blueish-greenish.  
Then I painted on the words and added the flowers around on the edges.
The Eternally is painted in with my gold, though it's hard to tell.

Lastly I added one darling photo from our wedding day.  
Photographed by the lovely Lemon Peel Studios.

What a fun project! 
I love the way it all came together.  
My husband really loves it too.
