Illustration Friday: Poise

When I think of the word "poise", I think of "elegant balance." My wedding doves are the best example I have of this concept, on many levels.

I created my wedding doves almost six years ago to design a more personalized wedding invitation. On many levels, "poise" is more than just a suspended position. In marriage, everything is a act of balance and teamwork, and on some days it is elegant -- on other days, not so much!

The doves were framed and signed by our guests at the wedding reception. It now hangs in our hallway.
