Jennifer wanted an illustration of her family. It was to be a surprise for her husband, on their 10th anniversary. Two of the items she especially wanted me to include in their drawing was...
A. Bruce's Suzuki Boulevard, or C90T (big motorcycle to the uninformed.)
B. The Dome house they were building in Florida. She said, and I quote..."The dome definitely needs to be in the drawing… it is a major part of our lives and is one of the things that makes us, well, us."
So I went to work and drew the little fam. settling into their Florida paradise.
I e-mailed Jennifer her creation.
She wrote said, (And I'm not quoting her here, but I'm pretty close...) "Well, I don't know how to tell you this, but we're selling the dome." I guess what made them, them, no longer made them, them - then. (Did you follow that?) Jennifer paid me for that illustration, thank you very much, and then asked if I could put another one together. This time she asked me for a drawing just of Bruce, who enjoys taking his ride out on camping trips every now and then. It took me a bit before I could get back to doing a drawing for her, but I got in done - in time enough for their anniversary.
Here are some photos from the unveiling.
Thanks Jennifer for commissioning me to celebrate your anniversary. (I seem to be very popular with anniversaries.) Go buy that pink Harley and let's the three of us go for a ride.
By the way, if anyone is interested in a
dome abode, located somewhere in sunny Florida, I understand that Jennifer and Bruce are still looking for a buyer. It's brand new and unused.
