Why I paint weddings…
The snow that late night in Cranberry Township was beautiful, and before I came to understand the gravity of my situation my car was gliding on the road at about 70 mph. As my heart skipped several beats the tires seemed to grasp the road again and I was able to slow it back down to 35 mph • Near death experience • Not really, but it was a wakeup call. It made me ponder about my late night job • My 2 girls • My wife • And God • In that one hour drive home, He answered my prayer in the last 3 minutes. He answered it through a podcast • I learned about an artist that painted her friend’s wedding as a present, but then realized that she can make other people happy as well. These paintings served as constant reminders of the couple's love for each other. And trust me, reminders do work • Especially for us husbands ;) . So, that’s why I paint weddings • In those 3 minutes, God had given me an answer on how to use my talents to help others strengthen their marriage and their LOVE.
