White Picket Fence and Happily Ever After

White Picket Fence, 6 x 8, Oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2012,  SOLD

What is it about white picket fences that make me feel settled and peaceful? At home? Maybe that is just my state of mind right now... this past weekend my son and his beautiful bride were married in Long Island. They are absolutely perfect for each other and the whole weekend was full of joy. My heart is overflowing. 

Here are some special moments from the day...

Mr. and Mrs. Rawson Daniel 

Happily ever after...

Laurel, Lovely picket fence and I agree they do make us feel at home and protected. Maybe because they take tending to to look nice and only someone with a tender heart would live there?

Beautiful couple. Congrats to all!

I have not been making the rounds of the blogs for some time but, I always loved your work and now I am reminded how much I have missed it. So fresh and beautiful.

Congrats to your son and gorgeous daughter-in-law too.

Here, in France, I can't imagine my house without a fence, it's seems so mandatory for our privacy, it's surely a state of mind...
The newly married are beautiful, congrats!

Laurel, congrats on your beautiful family wedding. The happy couple looks wonderful. I just love the brides dress. Happy for you all. We went through this with our son last December, and it is so special.
P.s. I really love your oil paintings.
