Caroline contacted me about doing an illustration for her parent's 30th wedding anniversary. (She is in the middle of the trio.) Thirty years of marriage is something to celebrate! Don't you agree? I was honored to be asked to create something to help commemorate the happy event.
Caroline sent me several photos of the family, including photos of what she described as her parent's "hippie wedding."
I thought it would be fun to take all five of the family members and illustrate the parents in their original wedding attire, and the rest of the family in true Flower Power Fashion. She, apparently a free soul, jumped on the idea and set me loose. (I like it when that happens.)
Here's what I came up with.
The color is not quite right on this scan. The grass is much too yellow. It's a long story as to why it looks that way, but I tried to fix it, and only ended up turning everybody blue. Please just imagine grass that is green, and not drought yellow.
Caroline was kind enough to send me these photos from their celebration at the cabin. Aren't they a good looking couple? Also a photo of the illustration hanging on their cabin wall. (Which I understand was it's temporary home - read her blog for further details.)
Thank you Caroline for using me to help honor your parents on such a special day. Give them my regards.
The wife and I are just one year behind them, (29 years on June 9th) and our love/bond is still strong.
