... like Dante said but they, kevin and Jenny, will not celebrate their love in Tuscany but in Paris...
This took me 4 weeks of industrious painting but i have never been more overjoyed to paint that dress! I worked from scratch after a wedding gown ad but changed the dress to suit mine and kevin's needs, i loved to do the bead work. The male part was as usual scary for me but i think i pulled it off, i know my friend kevin is happy with the result
Kevin is a poet and a true artist and he infused me with magic painting skills this time because this was difficult to make a dream of a couple come alive.
I love my glass vase, i have been dying to do that, how the light travels on glass and you see the stems of the roses, that was pure painter's joy and i think i succeeded in my mission there. I love the recurrent theme of the roses, purity personified, in the window the vase and his boutonniere.
May this great couple, the poet and his lady dove be as happy as i painted them, may art be the foreshadow of the happy future, may they know only bliss like they deserve

A commission for my friend kevin
with whom i worked out every detail and who chose the title too.
It was my privilege and honor and great artistic pleasure to paint true love
I hope Jenny loves her slightly belated valentine gift as much as i loved painting it
