I would love to Illustrate that very idea, during a wedding ceremony. And all that would be needed, is a blank canvas, an easel ( with a protective tray, placed on a protective sheet), a collection of small jelly jars filled with vibrant colors of paint and a willing couple.
The couple would (very carefully) pour the jars of paint down the front of their canvas to symbolize the creating of a life together.
The blank canvas represents, the day of the wedding, and a new beginning. The paint colors signify the experiences that lie ahead. Each color a moment to be had. Colors of joys and sorrows, blessings and heartache. The colors are the couples milestones, their celebrations, tribulations, passions and dreams. They are the moments that become the days that make-up the years.
The painted canvas will be the couples life (and life's art). It will be exactly what the two of them make it. There will be places on the canvas when the colors blend and mix, flowing together, creating a new color of experiences shared. There will be places when the colors stay separate and stand out alone and independent... yet, still a compliment to the bold color by it's side. And there may be places of contrast. Parts of the canvas that look dark or messy and not at all to the couples liking. While another spot remains blank and bare.
However, when you step back and look at the canvas in it's entirety, you will see that it clearly is "An Original Masterpiece" unlike anything you've ever seen before. Each color, contrast, shadow, blend as unique and beautiful as each couple.
