Arabian in Mideaval Costume by Christine Rietsch by Black-Feather
Arabian in Mideaval Costume by Christine Rietsch
This is drawn on 100% cotton paper from Colonial Williamsburg.  I had gone there on my honeymoon.

My uncle had given us a huge wedding gift, so I wanted something special for his thank you card.   Since we had visited Mideaval Times in New York, and had a Renaissance Festival wedding, I felt this style was appropriate.

It's 5 inches by 7 inches.  Ink and Prismacolors.Hug

Renaissance Wedding 9.20.2015 by Black-Feather
Renaissance Wedding 9.20.2015
One of my wedding photos from the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.  It was the best day ever!!!!   Everything is handmade by various people.  Hubby's outfit is made by another merchant at the Festival.

A great time was had by everyone.   Over 100 people attended!!  We had a Wiccan priestess to do our ceremony.   No handfasting for us.  We've known each other 23 years, and engaged for a while.    This just pretty much sealed our relationship before everyone and the gods.  :)

:blowkiss: Hello! I'm going through favorites I've missed in the past and thanking people, so bear with me for taking so long to give a personal reply.
:iconrubcheeksplz: Thank you SO much for your support by adding my first daily deviation to your favorites back in 2012. :giggle: A long time ago, I know! But I had to thank you sometime!

This is a formal invitation to come and see where my gallery has gone since then, since I believe I've vastly improved. :love: If you don't care for it no harm done and I won't bother you anymore. :D
