These beautiful girls are my cousins. Maryssa (front) was getting married and Safiya was assisting. Although I did not include them in the painting, Maryssa had made matching masks for everyone involved (due to the Covid pandemic). I had really intended to make some reference to current issues, but despite the restrictions, everyone was able to have a great time, so I decided to save the rhetoric for another painting.

This was painted from photographs and memory as, obviously, I could not attend in person. Both Maryssa and Safiya are athletic and confident girls and I was happy to see them in this relaxed and happy pose before the wedding.
