Better late than never...

A little more than a year ago my best friend got married. I didn't have the cash at the time to buy her and her new hubby a gift. But I knew that I would get her (err them) something eventually - as soon as I figured out what to get them. After awhile I had an idea. About a year ago I commissioned an artist to do a wedding portrait of them from their favourite picture of the day. Here is the wedding picture...

Isn't it pretty?

Now the copy I gave the guy wasn't as nice and clear as that. It was a crappy print from my crappy, almost out of ink, printer. It was at least in colour though. The guy didn't have email (!!! hard to imagine eh?) so that was the best I could get him unfortunately. But he did a pretty good job. I was rather impressed when I got it back early in November. It came with the matte and the guy was nice enough to supply me with cardboard, etc for shipping. So I fed-ex'ed it to them and they got it as a late wedding gift/early Christmas gift. I considered getting it framed for them but thought that they may prefer to pick out something suited to their style. And this is the finished product...



Voila!
