Making Life Awesome, One Portrait at a Time.

Recently Demanda and I have been talking about how we need to redecorate our condo. Sure it's cute and all but we want it to be awesome. Some parts of it are pretty sweet....

Like this wall

What's that you say? You wanna see a closer view? Ok!

Cute lil stuff.

My 2010 V-Day card from Demanda and some forbidden fruit.
(It's forbidden because it's plastic.)

Yes, that IS a picture of Mike Newton next to Swagga E.

 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 men things and forget. Even hanging up a few more pictures would help.

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.

Bwahahahaha!!! You crack me up!

And one of the decorative boxes on your wall is crooked. I need you to fix that ASAP. No seriously, I can't sleep knowing it's not straight.

I'm glad I could be of service. My talent is not recognized by many. Most people who have the gift of vision don't appreciate it.

@TK- I'll have to look again, I think I was standing at a weird angle for each picture. I may be the crooked one. ;) And yes, your talents are amazing..thank you for bringing it into my life.

@inotu-Haha I'm so going to have her autograph them in FORKS!

@Rena- Of course your stuff is hanging up! It's too beautiful to be in a drawer. I even snuck some of the not so obvious twi ones into my office to hang up by my desk ;) Can't have Rob porn up because clients can see my desk when they come in. Boooooo.

Those are... really great portraits!! I had no idea TK had talent. Really.

Also, I love that you guys have your shit out in the open. It makes me happy that I'm not the only freak around...

I can't stop laughing.
I was soooo not prepared.
I hope they have special frames and lighting in your home.
I wonder if she would be willing to do our portraits in Forks?? She could make a few bucks. LOL!!

I can't stop laughing!!! That is hilarious! Of course those would look fantastic next to Pocket Jasper and Pocket Edward in between the squares on the wall.
