Getting To The Parade by LindaRHerzog Getting To The Parade by LindaRHerzog
I finished this a few months ago and forgot to post it.

24 x 36 Oil

While antique shopping I found this redused size replica of a bride maniquin. In Europe they would do a wedding parade through the town of a maniquin bride and groom dress up in wedding attire to represent the bride and groom. She is three feet tall and I had to have her. That night I had a dream of this painting. So there you have it.

I could not find a percheron horse in the position I wanted and with out gear. So I had to peice him together with several images that I searched out.
