Fair Marissa and Russell the Elf -Paint Party Friday

This is a piece I made especially for Russell and Marissa in honor of their recent engagement.  They are such a dear and charming couple.  I was impressed that Russell didn't mind that I had portrayed him as an elf.  Ah, young love!  I used pen and ink for the outlines and my beloved Prismacolor pencils to put brilliant color to the piece.

Above you see my reference photo of this sweet couple.  May their life together be a wonderful, continuing adventure!

I may not be able to post very much over the next few weeks, as I discovered only last week that I need immediate surgery on my hip.  I am not that seriously old, so this was a real shocker to me.  I would appreciate your prayers.

Happy Paint Party Friday and have a great weekend all you wonderful people!

Your drawing of the lovely couple is gorgeous. Sorry to hear that you need hip surgery. I had a new knee done at the end of February, and it went very well, I hope that encourages you. I will be thinking of you, Sweetie. Hugs, Valerie
