Happy Anniversary Honey!

Today my husband and I have been married for 19 years. We have two wonderful boys, who I attempted to capture in the painting below as a gift for my husband.

Our boys are sitting on rocks, over looking the ocean near Eureka, California. I may attempt this painting again as I feel that this one is over worked. But, alas, I didn't have time to paint another before giving it to my husband this morning. He, by the way, wrote me a lovely poem, in addition to the gifts he gave me. What a sweety.

I love you honey! Happy Anniversary!

Watercolor and ink on watercolor paper, 8x10.

Happy Anniversary, Susan!!!

What a coincidence, in a way. Rob and I came back from San Francisco last night. We had our national holiday (Canada Day July 1) so we had a long weekend. It was our 19. Anniversary, too!!!! (June 29).

Susan, this painting is beautiful and I'm sure you might do it again, but this one is still very special. Do another one, but not to replace this one, just an addition to it. I love the harmonious colours and the loose style. Speaking for myself, I quite like this painting. You did well!

Hugs, Bonny

You've captured a moment in time which I am sure your husband will treasure forever. Your boys will be fighting over this one day unless you do make another one or two of them.

Happy Anniversary!
