I visited St. Paul one crisp winter night, right before Christmas. There was an adorable young couple kissing in Rice Park. I went up to them and asked permission if I could take some photos of them for a painting. They happily agreed. Turns out they had just gotten engaged minutes earlier! So, they let me help their friend pose their engagement photo shoots, and in return I got the cutest models for my reference photos. This is the painting that I made as a result of those photos. This setting is on the steps of the Landmark Center in St. Paul. I didn’t get the contact of those two young kids to send them the final result, but I hope that our universes collide again somehow.
