Big Day

The start of a journey together and the meaningful milestones along the way, these are the occasions that can be permanently captured in a timeless oil painting by John Kelley.

Luke and Autumn, May 2017

"In 2017 after 20 years of success as a award winning studio artist I decided it was time to venture out into a much more personal and direct form of painting. This live event painting of Luke and Autumn's first dance will always hold a special place in my heart.  I came to their wedding with the hope of experiencing the in's and out's of painting a wedding reception from life.  What I did not expect was the emotion I myself would feel as I watched them head out on their journey together. It will always be one of my fondest memories" - John
