Merry Christmas, Happy Anniversary, and Happy Birthday!
As of today, my parents have been married for about 41.75 years. In the spring of 2010 they took a Mediterranean cruise to celebrate both their 40th Anniversary and 60th Birthdays.
This painting is a Christmas gift for my dad. I painted it from one of the many beautiful photos he took while on their “trip of a lifetime.” The scene is from an afternoon they spent together exploring Santorini, Greece.
I am so lucky to have parents who still love each other after so many years. I hope this painting will always remind them of both the wonderful they had together, along with the reason they celebrated — the huge accomplishment of spending a committed lifetime together.
Thanks for setting such a great example of what TRUE LOVE is Dad and Mom!
Above is a short video showing the painting in progress from start to finish, including my snack of Greek Yogurt. The music is fitting to the marriage, not the country of Greece. 🙂 (“Look At Us” by Vince Gill)
