A wedding painting

Amy recently had a post about a company that does an oil painting of your wedding, to capture the memories in a canvas as opposed to a few pixels.

That got me a thinking, what if I turn my new little hobby back on that old thing that drove me mad?

While I could never in a million years attempt anything with people in it (I just can't draw people or animals well enough to my liking. I'm a picky bastard sometimes) I did have a thought of one object and addition that personified my wedding.

So I sat down with my brush and paint and attempted to recreate my dress complete with tail (but without me in it).I'm honestly rather impressed with how it turned out. It was just a whim idea but it looks a damn bit like what I wore (helped that I had so many pictures to go off of though).

It's also nice as we never did do a "dress" picture and now I got the chance to make my own.

So, what do you all think? Neat idea, or am I paddling up a creek with a few things missing?
