The Dawson County Historical Society and Museum is opening a show of their collection of vintage wedding dresses on June 20-August 31, 2016.

I have painted seven pieces to accompany the show. I struggled with whether to paint the full figure or just the dress, mannequin style. I ended up doing a little of both. There are seven pieces in all, four oil paintings and three pastels. 

I am planning to host an online show for my newsletter subscribers. If you would like an invitation, please subscribe to my newsletter and let me know by June 30th
