Something Different for your Wedding: Live Event Painting

Several years ago I read an article in Town & Country Weddings about a woman who would come to your wedding (or event) and paint scenes throughout the evening.  I though it was the neatest idea, but was never able to find the artist.  Imagine my surprise when I found out that she (Joan Zylkin) would be painting at Mary and Drew's wedding!  I'm finishing up the wedding now, but thought you might enjoy seeing her progress throughout the evening.  She was creating her paintings at both the church and the reception.  I think it's super cool to watch an artist at work, and extra cool to see how she interprets the exact same event that I'm photographing!
