Wonderful Surprises

A couple weeks ago I got the most delightful email from the lovely Crystalyn over at FlavorPink. She wrote to let me know that she had used one of our wedding photos when trying out some new water colors. To say I felt completely honored that she would even pick a photo of Will and I would be a complete understatement. I've never had anyone just randomly paint a picture of me. It's a pretty surreal kind of feeling. Then she asked if I would like the picture, to which I ecstatically said yes
I am such a sucker for nice packaging
Earlier this week I got the painting in the mail, and I must say it is even more wonderful in person. I just need to find a nice little frame for it so I can set it up right next to my desk. 
And if any of you guys are interested in getting your own custom painting from Crystalyn, she had kindly offered a 20% discount code to her shop for all of my readers! Just use 'LITTLELADY20'

  1. This is so awesome!
    I love to see other artists doing custom portraits in real media. With the rise of digital media, the demand for the tactile has really diminished, but with Etsy bringing so many vendors right to your computer, I've seen more and more artists making a go of it the old fashioned analog way. Makes me smile!

    1. I couldn't agree with you more! Don't get me wrong I love digital art as well but there is just something so wonderful about the texture and even the feel of an actual painting.
