Our house is proof that if you send us stuff, it will get displayed somewhere. Which leads me back to my original point of this blog: Gifts.
We need to redecorate. Big time. One of my goals in life is to be an interior designer, we'll see if it ever happens. With enough time and money, I'm sure our house would look amazing. Demanda and I both randomly throw out ideas of things we want to change about our place but then we get distracted by sparkly
|First thing that came up when I googled "portraits". |
I can think of worse things hanging in our house than this gorgeous face!
This got me thinking that although we have pictures up, we don't have enough pictures of ourselves. Because I think everyone needs a painting of themselves in their home, I searched high and low for an artist who would be able to bring the character of our looks, as well as our personalities to life. I did research on the internetz and came across someone who had the skills we were looking for. I reached out to her, complimenting her artistic style. When she presented me with the painting she created of me, I was blown away by how life-like it was. After she finished my painting, we agreed on a payment plan and she then demonstrated her awesome abilities by creating a painting of Demanda. I admit, I was reluctant to display these on our blog because they are so pure, so raw, that I knew they would reach down into the viewers soul and bring up emotions they never knew existed. But I feel like the world NEEDS to see these pieces of art. Without further ado, I present to you our portraits by Texas Katherine.
Thank you TK for sharing your gift with us.
