Love in Puerto Rico

Mixed Media on Canvas

This commissioned piece was done for a couple who married during their second chapter in life - they were so in love, like a pair of young kids. The wife is from Puerto Rico, a magical place where my husband and I actually got married as well. This piece was created after the devastation of Hurricane Maria and features some of the buildings in the historic city. The husband converted to Catholicism for his new bride, hence the rosary. The lady represents the wife, and she is blowing love and healing blessings over Puerto Rico.
