“The union of two people in love is an architectural wonder!


It is a commitment to erect, to construct a masterpiece in which both individuals are the authors, the engineer and the architect.


Like any architectural work of art, this union must have a solid substructure, a bedrock as a result of dialogue, mutual understanding, discovery of one another, support of one another and most importantly, enthusiasm for each other’s individualism and independent nature. Each must bring 100% of their individual happiness to the union.  Only then the architectural design can begin to take flight and begin a wonderful ‘together journey’ destined to succeed …


Love is at the center of it all, it is our most powerful and meaningful force in life… Religion or not, Love persist, prevails and celebrates the unification of two people, creators and builders of their own destiny together, their architectural masterpiece and under the traditional laws of Church and State, their marriage..


This painting was created minutes after I attended a wedding ceremony in Colombia, south America; In the air a wonderful tangible flavor of the Latin culture, the sounds of choirs as the mothers of the groom and bride were displaying mixed emotions, sweet melancholy and happiness as they said farewell to their offspring; gracing this stage, a five year old maiden of honor; intelligent, independent and beautiful ambassador of her culture and distinguished ethnicity. The church, the candles, the flowers and of course, the bride and groom’s mutual love and respect for one another.


These inspirational elements propelled me to the studio where, anticipating that I would not attend any festivity related to their wedding, I had left a virgin white canvas on the easel in hope to attempt to do justice to that meaningful and wonderful moment, genesis of what in time will become their architectural wonder!! …” -Orlando Agudelo-Botero
