For Christmas each year, the only thing I request of my dh is a drawing/painting. My dh is fabulously talented--he's entirely self-taught and draws/paints the most beautiful things. Anyway--we are actually newlyweds (we've been married for about 6 weeks) and so this year my dh decided to pick one of our recent wedding photos and use it to paint from. It was a surprise--I always know what I'm getting (a drawing/painting) but I never know of what. I wanted to share it with you guys b/c I'm so proud of it. Below is a digital file of his painting and the original photograph. (He got rid of my freckles and gave himself more hair!! ) he didn't want me to post the original photo b/c he thought that it showed "how awful" his painting was--I think it shows how skilled he is--it's amazing to me that he can just look at an image and produce such beautiful work. Anyway--sorry to boast about my dh so much but I haven't been able to show it to anyway yet! I love my dh
That is FABULOUS!!! Your DH is extremely talented! Doing portraits is very hard, I love to draw and I could never do faces. Eyes are very hard to draw in my opinion. What a beautiful photo and great expression of love and talent! You both should be very proud!
