Recently, I was lucky enough to attend two weddings in one month for two of my very good friends. As a gift, I made these custom paintings depicting the sky above each wedding. Using an online star chart calculator, I found the exact position of the stars unique to each venue and time of ceremony. I used acrylics to paint pretty galaxy clouds in the background and added the stars and constellations on top using a white gel pen. The largest gold spot in the sky is the Sun and the other larger dots represent Jupiter and Venus. Each piece has a printed label embellished with a gold border commemorating the date and location. The final pieces measure about 11×14″ on cold-pressed illustration board and are fitted into black satin frames. Astronomy gifts are the best! Congratulations to Chelsea & Nick and Sharilyn & Noah! Your love will be forever written in the stars!
