Last month I was asked to create a very special wedding present. My client had the idea of incorporating the names of the Bride and Groom, along with their wedding date. She asked for a pair of dachshunds, as the couple have one themselves, and for the background to be blues. Initially, I thought that I'd do the names as scrolls in the top corners, with the date in the middle, but as I painted I thought it would be more in fitting with the image to have the names and date inside a loveheart, so that's what I did. I can't show you the finished picture here because the couple haven't been given it yet and I'd hate to spoil the surprise... but here's another example.
I thought it would be great to offer these as Wedding Presents - a bespoke painting, with the names and date. They would also make great Christening Presents, Anniversary Presents etc... I'll paint some more examples soon. I'm charging £250 which includes postage (to the UK) and the painting comes ready to hang. Please get in touch if you're interested.
