Guest Blog: Dorothy Art & GIVEAWAY

Dorothy Collier is a southern artist, creating original oil paintings of southern scenes atop pages of text.  Her current best selling commission pieces are her custom church paintings.  These unique paintings feature a portrait of the bride and groom’s church, reception site, or significant building on canvas, with their personalized wedding invitation or program peeking throughout the background of the oil paint.

“While working on these commissions, I find myself day dreaming about each couple I’m creating the keepsake for.  I’ll think about the venue, what the church might look like on the inside, and how much love and fun will be shared on their special day,” Dorothy says.  “Each one is different and signifies how memorable everyone’s wedding day is.”

All Dorothy needs to start is a photo to work from and a copy of the couple’s wedding invitation or program.  Sometimes she’ll even use vintage hymns in lieu of the personalized paper.  She has now started offering prints in addition to your original piece.  Prints make thoughtful gifts for bridesmaids, wedding attendants, or parents of the bride and groom.
