Sandy's Wedding March

There's no end to the variety of request that I get for these illustrations.

Sandy wrote me wanting something to commemorate her 45th wedding anniversary with her husband, Glen. (She said that they were married during a blizzard and it was 19 degree below. I didn't ask, but figured that we're talking about Nome, Alaska here.) She asked me about the possibility of me depicting their marriage at three different stages in their lives:

Newly Weds

Some Where - About Midway

Today

So, I decided to illustrate them as a cake topper, with the two of them cutting the cake, while witnessing the event as a painting on the wall.

I think it turned out fairly well, if I do say so myself - which I am generally inclined to do. Sandy liked it. At least that's what she told me, and she has the apperance of being an honest person to me. What say you?

Blessings on you Sandy and Glen. It was an honored to help you celebrate your long and lasting marriage.

Also: I'm creating a list of people that have used my art in the headers of their blogs and/or web sites - on the right side of the page. If your name is not there and you think it should be then drop me a note and I'll see if you qualify.

I like it! I hope my husband and I make it that many years, we are going on 12, so 40+ seems a long ways away.

This is a really clever way to do this. I'll be in touch with you in a few more decades to do the same for me and my marriage.
