I occasionally get photos from clients showing me how they’ve framed their portraits or where they’re displayed in their house. But rarely do I get the chance to witness the actual gifting of one of my paintings.
Remember the painting with 21 dogs? Well, the client commissioned it as a gift for her parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. The whole family went on a cruise to Alaska and I’ll be darned if she didn’t take that huge painting ALL THE WAY TO ALASKA, onto a ship and waited until the last day on board to present it.
I think that’s pretty cool.
