The Painters Honeymoon

I found this painting by Lord Frederick Leighton called The Painters Honeymoon at the Art Renewal Center museum.  You see their complete bliss together as the painter sketches and his wife casually looks on.  The magnificent light and rendering of her dress illuminates her face and the room.  Just as the fruit in the window has grown to maturity so has their love which also portends to bear fruit.  Below is a quick watercolor rendering of this painting.
