"Lincoln's Birthday" My Parents Wedding

The year was 1939
The date was February 12th.
Lincoln's Birthday.
The Place was Carroll St. Brooklyn N.Y.
The Church was Our lady Of Peace
My father was 24 years old
and my mother was 22.
That's when my parent's were married.
The back ground is very Art Deco
and so is the style.
As I was painting the train
on my mothers gown
I couldn't help but feel that
the whole future of their lives together
lay beneath it.
Needless to say... I got very wound up in it.
