Nicole & Joey | 08.25.13
Commissioned piece I did for this wonderful couple’s Anniversary (which is actually tomorrow but they got the gift today decided to open it so I thought I could share here)! I remember about a year ago when Nicole first approached me about doing a portrait of her and Joey as a gift.
This is my 3rd commissioned anniversary gift! It is always exciting to be approached by someone who genuinely enjoys your work/art. Someone who wants me to create something entirely of my own and for it to be a gift to someone special in their life. Not only was I given the opportunity to create something new, but a memorable gift to two other people. I couldn’t be anymore happier when I saw the big smiles on their faces as Joey opened the gift!
It was a joy to have made one of my favorite pieces, but to also have met Nicole for the first time and seeing Joey again after two years!
For the wonderful cook of a wife and the incredibly talented vocalist/lyricist from the band From Indian Lakes & to now the many years to come,
Happy Anniversary to you both!
