This portrait of my husband’s daughters is based on his favorite photo of them when they were little girls. The photo was taken at the Outer Banks of North Carolina, one of our favorite vacation spots.
The painting was a surprise gift for Father’s Day and to make things more interesting, I hung the painting in our living room without saying anything about it. I wanted to see how long it would take him to notice. Well, after three days I had to drop a few hints because Father’s Day had arrived and even though he’d often been in the same room as the painting, he hadn’t noticed it. No surprise!
Well, once he found it, the painting generated the desired emotional effect. I knew he would love it. And now I have a great story to tell on him!
