Forever Yours is an original oil on canvas by Steve Henderson.
The sweet, heady aroma of flowers permeates the landscape, and lanterns hanging from the branches of the tree add a sparkle of earthly starlight to the scene. It is these lamps that make us wonder if the couple was part of a wedding reception, and they stole away to a secluded corner of the venue. Or perhaps the lights are simply there – magically – without any further explanation needed.
As with many representational paintings, Forever Yours invites the viewer to step into the artwork and become a part of the story. Indeed, the viewer is invited to make up the story, embellish it, change it as time goes by and experience adds to the telling.
The place is quiet, peaceful, secluded. The couple, as all couples in intense love tend to do, have eyes and attention for no one but each other, so that even if there were a crowd, they would not allow the noise and activity to intrude upon their moment.
But to ensure that no noise or activity does intrude upon their moments, the couple has stolen away to a private and isolate place, a place of beauty and fantasy, a place of lights and reflection and the arched bridge that adds so much to any scene.
