Shawna emailed me in November with one goal – to give her sister-in-law Amy a keepsake painting from her wedding for Christmas. Married that previous May at the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua, Maui, she had everything she needed to provide me with to expedite Amy’s painting to arrive in Phoenix by Christmas Eve. She saw examples of my work on Facebook and gave me details she wanted to incorporate into her sister’s painting. She had the wedding colors, sage green and French blue, and she provided me with a photos from the wedding.
I was lucky enough to be able to add Amy’s painting into my production schedule because with 17 paintings due by the holidays, 3 of which had a similar color palette that made it “easy” to add into the mix. I was glad to do it for Shawna – she was so excited at the prospect of seeing Amy’s face as she opened her thoughtful gift.
What was most important for Shawna to include in the painting featuring Amy’s wedding dress were the colors of the wedding, the bouquet, their names and wedding date, and lyrics from their first dance “You & Me” by Dave Matthews Band. It was so much fun to listen to the song as I painted:
“Bethany was wonderful to work with and made me feel as if a good friend was creating the painting for me. I expected the painting to be beautiful but when it arrived it really took our breath away.” – Shawna
